Abe Miereau is the ultimate proof that one can rise above hardships and low beginnings. Blessed with an eidetic memory and superior artistic values, he yet has hazy learning capabilities. Plunged into early years of turmoil and despair, he confronts life by seeking relationships that mentor him along life's precarious path to normalcy. As he battles for the love of his life-long friend, Sarah, he comes to understand how delicate life is and how it can be made sturdy by opening his heart to the advice of iconic powers that influence his life. But there is still one burning secret that Sarah had to hide from Abe, knowing its revelation would destroy the love they had come to cherish. The Taming of A Sioux sweeps from the confines of a small timber town in Michigan's Upper Peninsula (Nahma) to All American football glory at the University of Michigan (Ann Arbor), to record setting performance with the Green Bay Packers, to the social register of British Artistic Museums. Abe's intriguing story bumps and bruises its way through the pits of despair to the heights of success and ecstasy.
