I have seen the film many times and one day at the library I picked the book up and well it has held me in it's intense, heart warming story since! The book is much better than the film.
The story is about an american soldier who wants to be posted in the frontier before it vanishes and becomes civilized. He is posted to a Fort Sedgewick and he is all alone. The army have forgotten about him and he finds neighbours, friends and loved ones with the Indians. He finds he belongs with them.
I definately recommend this book. It is a worthwhile read.
