Two families en route to Wyoming. An ambush by Crow warriors. A massacre – and two little girls missing. Logan, a young man who served as scout to the small convoy, brings the only other survivor, old Giuseppe, back to civilisation, and makes him a promise: he’ll find the girls. Meanwhile, Salmon Leap, a young Lakota warrior turned away by the father of the woman he loves, seeks a glorious death – and finds Sharon, one of the two girls.
