In Blind Fury, Wakara is starting to come to terms with the death of her mother, but she misses her presence every day, especially when it comes to getting maternal wisdom on the topic of boys and dating. Anne, the Native housekeeper, nurtures Wakara's fascination with her own Indian heritage as she disciples the young teen in her walk of faith. When a severe mountain snowstorm blankets Eagle Lodge with its blind fury, Wakara rides Lily into the storm to try and save some lost elk hunters.
