Description

Ben Lassiter is a former Confederate soldier travelling to the Western US with his daughter, following the Civil War. Their journey is soon interrupted by a group of patrolling Union soldiers, and the shadow of the recent war proves hard to shake off.

Elaine Stewart (Brigadoon, The Bad and the Beautiful) co-stars as Beth Drury, a pretty young woman riding alongside the soldiers on her way to meet her fiancé, a cavalry officer. Her chemistry with Lassiter proves undeniable, and the pair becomes romantically attached. When Native Americans attack, Ben guides Beth to the safety of the cavalry camp, only to find it besieged! After Beth’s rabid anti-Confederate sister arrives, things only get more complicated.

Ben must battle heroically to save the woman he loves – and the man she’s going to marry.
