Plot

Before the myths and legends were born out of the West, this is the way it was. Easterner Pike struggles as a trapper to survive in the wilderness and steals a miraculous stallion, Eagle's Wing, from the Comanche Indians. His fate leads him to meet Chief White Bull, whom he must compete violently with for the horse.
