When Jenny finds an unusual stone in the garden she thinks at first it is magic. But her mother tells her it is a flint, probably hundreds of years old. Jenny surveys her South Dakota garden. 'What was it like here then' she asks 'Just think' her mother replies. Jenny looks beyond the garden to the skyline and imagines the land so long ago. That night she dreams of the world as it once was - the garden, the houses, and the city skyline all gone, nothing but wilderness and a circle of people talking softly in the firelight. One of the men turns to Jenny and she knows he wants her to return his stone. . . .
