In his years living in the wild frontier, Gordon Hawkes has become a legend among mountain men. He has raised his family in seclusion, emerging only to visit trading posts and his adoptive tribe, the Crow. But his hard-won peace and happiness are about to be threatened by the dark clouds of war...
While Hawkes is escorting the Crow tribe's yearly annuity from the United States government, their cunning enemies, the Sioux, stage an ambush. Captured and enslaved, Hawkes must decide whether to live as a slave, die as a prisoner, or renounce his past life and join the Sioux tribe.
His only hope rests in the hands of his son Cameron, who must find the courage to face his father's captors and bring Gordon Hawkes back alive.
