Three Civil War deserters, dispossessed of
all virtue and living on the fringe of
humanity, kidnap a young boy with the
sole purpose of conscripting him into
their degenerate band of misfits. Tethered
about the neck with a rawhide lace and
made to bid the commands of General
Ike Smith, the boy's survival depends
upon his ability to adapt to their
malevolent ways—a lesson he learns
quickly. He abandons the teachings of
his clergyman father, and embraces the
mindless violence to which he is exposed.
For all he finds distasteful in the three
men he has grown to despise, he also
finds he has an unexplained affinity for
the power that resides in the violence
that defines them. The boy's life, cast into
darkness and evil, promises no chance for
salvation. His single opportunity for
redemption may well lie with an old
Indian horse trainer and a small band of
“unbroke” horses.
