Storyline

Kansas, 1868. A wagon train is attacked by a band of Lakota Sioux led by the young and athletic warrior Tokalah. The attractive, red haired Anna Brewster-Morgan and her friend Sarah White are on this wagon train too. When Tokalah noticed a terrified Anna with a Bible, he thinks this is an omen. Despite killing the other passengers of the wagon train, only Anna and Sarah may continue their voyage. The next day Anna and Sarah are kidnapped by Tokalah. At first terrified of her captors, the unhappily married Anna eventually falls in love with the noble, honorable Tokalah. After a year's captivity, Sarah is returned to her own people. Anna now must choose between her new life with Tokalah and her previous existence as the wife of farmer Daniel Morgan. Written by Robert

Trivia

Historical records show that Anna Brewster, who was born on December 10th, 1844, married James Morgan in 1868 at the urging of her brother Daniel. One month after that, Sioux Indians raided her farm, wounded her husband and took her captive. On their way back to their village, the Sioux traded Anna to a band of Cheyenne Indians who already owned another captured white woman named Sarah White. Anna Brewster Morgan went to live with the Cheyenne and married one of their Chiefs with whom she became pregnant. Roughly one year after her capture, Anna was found by General George Custer. She was returned to her husband, James Morgan. She gave birth to a half-Indian son, Ira, who fell ill and died at age two. The Morgans had a daughter, Mary and two sons, Claud and Glen. Unhappy in her marriage to James, Anna left him and went to live with her brother, Daniel Brewster. After her divorce from James Morgan, Anna lived under a lifelong stigma because of her past with the Cheyenne. Later in life, she was admitted to a mental hospital where she died in 1902. She was buried next to her son Ira. See more »

Goofs

In the scenes where Anna and Sarah first escaped they were riding bareback then there were times you could see saddles on the horses, especially at the river where they're recaptured - you can see them bareback, but when Anna's horse goes down you can see a saddle on her horse. See more »

EXCELLENT, MICHAEL GREYEYES IS SUPERB
27 December 2000 | by (charleston, S.C.) – See all my reviews

I thought this movie was excellent! Mr Greyeyes played the role of Tokala with expertise and heart! I feel he should have gotten better credit in the billing. He should've been right there with Janine Turner! The storyline was very true to life. I would buy this video if CBS ever puts it on video. It is truly one to watch over and over again! I was totally mesmerized thru the entire movie!
