Seeking gold, the new white settlers block all Indian access to the Bozeman Trail; they are determined to kill any Indian who comes anywhere near the trail that leads to the gold fields. Red Cloud is not afraid. A Sioux leader, he moves toward the Bozeman Trail, determined to take back the gold fields for his people. A fierce fighter, Red Cloud is ready to stand up to anyone and anything. The settlers primary concern is no longer gold, but escaping death. The Pony Soldiers, their only hope, have the task of crushing an ensuing Sioux attack.
