Little Blaze wants to be the buffalo runner - he wants to lead the buffalo over the buffalo jump cliff.
Each jump means food for his people and new buffalo skins for robes and lodges. A jump is also a chance for the buffalo runner to earn a new name.
But his father has chosen his brother, Curly Bear, instead, which makes Little Blaze angry.
When Curly Bear stumbles while leading the herd, will Little Blaze be able to forget his hurt and anger and save his brother?
