With her mother dead one month, her father gone, and Pauline married, Ida now focuses her  attentions on her and Christine's future. She speaks with Father Hurlburt about Willard Pretty Dog,  who is again living on the reservation after having been wounded and disfigured in battle during  World War II. Ida pictures herself, Willard, and Christine living together. Because he's so badly disfigured, Willard doesn't associate with anyone; he stays to himself most of  the time. But Father Hurlburt arranges for Ida to meet Willard, and when they finally do, Ida is matter- of-fact about Willard's physical scars ("His weakness made me bold") and gains Willard's respect by  telling him about her rough life; Christine seems not even to notice Willard's disfigured features, and  he soon feels comfortable in Ida's house.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
