Plot Summary

A fur-trapper named Kelly, who once saved the life of a Sioux chief, is allowed to set his traps in Sioux territory during the late 1870s. Reluctantly he takes on a tenderfoot assistant named Anse and together they give shelter to a runaway Arapaho woman. Tensions develop when Anse falls in love with this woman and when the Sioux chief arrives with his warriors to re-claim her. Written by dinky-4 of Minneapolis

Trivia The horse ridden by Kelly is the same one that Clint Walker rode most of the time in the television series, Cheyenne (1955). The horse, named Brandy, can be identified by the large white blaze and the white spot on its right hip. See more »
Goofs The Lakota and Arapahoe were allies. They sometimes lived side by side and intermarried. For the Lakota (Gall's tribe) to hold an Arapahoe as a captive is impossible. See more »
