From the publisher

Young teacher George Gidner grabs the chance to spend a year teaching in 1930’s South Dakota.  So begins his life as a foreigner and a fascination with the heroes of the frontier.  The Battle at the Crossing is the climax of this tale of pioneering spirit.  Underlying all, however, is a warning that despite our shared language, the Americans may be disturbingly different.
