The Chief of an Indian tribe has died with gifts of furs piled by the burial for his use. Afterwards, three white men who watched the burial ceremony steal the sacred items and wander into Bill Hawks camp, Hawks is shot and taken prisoner by the Indians, who assume he was acting with them. The Indians are led by the beautiful Princess Lisa Raincloud, daughter of the Chief, who hates whites bitterly because her white mother was savagely murdered by a white gang after marrying her Indian father. She orders that Hawks be put to death after he is well enough. But before he recuperates fully, Lisa and Hawks find themselves falling in love with each other, much to the displeasure of her lead warrior, Grey Wolf. Written by rbecker28

A regal princess
11 February 2018 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Dana Wynter not only guest stars in this Wagon Train story, but she wrote the original story. In this the British born Wynter plays a most regal Indian princess who falls for Terry Wilson. There are some similarities in the relationship to that of James Stewart and Debra Paget in Broken Arrow.

She's the daughter of a recently deceased chief who is being cremated. As per the custom some hides are to be burned along with the corpse, but some white thieves steal them. Poor Bill Hawks is captured and wounded when the Indians think he's one of the thieves.

But the two take one look at each other and decide this is true love. That does not sit well with George Keymas the brave who had been courting her.

They never do mention what tribe this is. I think that's because there is no Indian tribe that had female rulers. It was a most patriarchal society.

That being said what a great pair of starcrossed lovers Dana Wynter and Terry Wilson make.
