He heads west to make a new life and finds himself the prisoner and slave of a Crow Indian tribe. He takes the Indian name Horse and plots his eventual escape which is foiled by a horse. Events lead to him becoming accepted as part of the tribe after killing an enemy Sioux warrior. He eventually marries the sister of his captor.
