Over a decade ago, a Shoshoni maiden loved mountain man Trace McCall. Her father did not approve of the union and stole her away – unaware that she was carrying the white man’s child. She married a member of her tribe to give her son a father, naming the child White Eagle. A war party of Sioux slaughters the Shoshoni camp, but the child escapes. With no place to run, White Eagle decides to find his white father.
