As a daring soldier in the Union Army, Ira Dutton earned the respect and affection of the men around him. Handsome and affable, he could have had a full social life when the war was over. But he felt that his "wild years" demanded atonement - and where could that better be found than in Molokai, where the ailing Father Damien needed help?So he made a free gift of himself, his strength and his capacity for love. Deeply patriotic, he cultivated in his charges devotion to America. A vivid exciting story.
