In 1867, Nebraska becomes a state, but still has no permanent peace with the Indians. Federal scout Wade Harper has a peace mission cut short when chief Thundercloud is murdered, supposedly by Harper's Indian comrade Wingfoot. Harper's efforts to get justice for Wingfoot are sabotaged by escaping murderer Reno.

A motor, likely a generator, is audible during the dialogue of several scenes and is particularly noticeable at six minutes into the film. Motors could not have been a natural background noise in Nebraska during the 1860's. See more »
Forced, Labored acting and terrible camera work...
An army scout captures Wingfoot--an Indian who works for the cavalry--who is wanted for murder. He brings him into the fort but the Indian, along with Lee Van Cleef, manages to escape. So Carey has to go after them. A no-good man and a woman, which he claims to be his wife, are rescued by Cleef and Wingfoot after their stagecoach is over-turned in an Indian chase. That's when Carey manages to catch Wingfoot/Cleef and takes them to a relay station where an old timer agrees to help take them back to the fort. Suddenly, before they can leave, they find they are surrounded by the Indians who want Wingfoot because the murder he is wanted for was their chief. Now Carey, the man and woman (who turns out to be Carey's former girlfriend), the relay manager and the two outlaws are trapped. There's lots of shooting and even a few times of catching the relay station on fire before the finale.
The acting in the movie is labored. It seems none of the actors/actresses were comfortable in their role nor had they learned their lines. It was really pitiful. But that was not the worst.
One of the most ridiculous things about the movie, other than the contrived, forced acting by all, is the use of fake rocks which are held up in front of the camera during the chase scenes and continue to move back and forth as though whoever was holding the picture could not hold it still. The "rocks" were there to highlight the front portion of the scenery and make it look "rocky" to match the mountains in the far background. But they certainly LOOKED super-imposed! It REALLY cheapens the movie. Were it not for the fact I taped it off cable I would not spend money to buy it on video/DVD.
