A fragile treaty between the Army and the Indians is about to come apart if the Army does not fulfill its obligation to deliver 200 head of cattle to the tribe within the week. Major Blaine wants peace and has commandeered 200 of Favor's cattle to drive to the Indians. Blaine also forbids the rest of Favor's herd to advance forward due to the possible Indian War. Thus, Favor decides to personally help Blaine get the job done -- deliver the cattle. But the Indian Latigo and his small band of followers want war and have announced that they will stop the cattle from arriving to the Indian tribe. That prompts the Major to seek aid from the main tribe to protect his 200-head cattle drive from Latigo, and so as not to infuriate the Indians, he decides he must travel alone to the main tribe. Latigo kills the Major, and his Indian band attacks the 200-head drive, but are driven back leaving a wounded Indian girl warrior (Leslie Wales) behind. She hates the whites for good reason, and a Sergeant (Gene Evans) hates the Indians for good reason. But the two of them come to understand and respect the other, and she is the group's last hope to reach the main tribe to recuse them from Latigo.
While crossing desert Apache land, the drovers spot a Sergeant carrying an officer who is dead. Favor sends for the Army who tell him the Sergeant and officer were trying to obtain more time for the government to fulfill its treaty obligations including the delivery of 200 cattle. The Major requisitions the cattle from Favor and plans for the Army to drive them. Knowing the Army men are inexperienced and the distance is a stretch, Favor along with Quince and Wishbone volunteer to help. The Major goes ahead alone but is found dead due to the renegade, Del Latigo, who wants the treaty broken. The men capture an Indian woman they wound in a fight who tells them how Apache women and child were slaughtered. Sgt. Pike who has wanted to kill her eventually tells her about his bride to be who was killed by the Apaches. After being down to one horse and no hope to make the delivery, Sgt. Pike lets the woman Lalota slip away to tell how the men tried to keep the peace with the Apaches.
The drovers find a Sergeant carrying a dead soldier in Apache country. They send for the Army learning the Apaches are due 200 cattle to keep a treaty. A renegade stands in the way. Favor, Jim, and Wishbone help try to deliver the cattle.
