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 »

Quotes

Great movie - wish it were available to purchase - why not?
18 June 2002 | by ladybugsiouxSee all my reviews

Thought this movie was quite poignant and a wonderful showing of how the whites actually treated the Native Americans and showed that the Natives were defending only their homes, their loved ones and their land. Also shows the worthlessness of the white man's word to the Native Americans when they destroyed Toklah's village after promising not to do so. Yeah, right!! Always believe your government!! Not in this life time. Shows, too, that the whites could have gotten along w/the Natives had they made a little effort rather than trying to commit genocide on them. The Native Americans are the reason the whites actually were able to survive here so had no reason to treat the Natives the way they did. Thought the love between the white woman and the Native American was a beautiful and wonderful thing. So deep and so caring even though their cultures were so different. Wish they would re-release this movie as I believe it has a lesson to teach about getting along w/different cultures. If not being re-released, any idea where I might obtain a copy of this movie? Do not care if it is used as long as it is in good playing condition.
