The Modoc Indians have fled the reservation, putting local settlers on edge and prompting the arrival of Army advisor Jed Britton.
Luash, a young Modoc tribeswoman and the voice of the Modoc Eagle Spirit, speaks English and is chosen as Jed's interpreter.
Luash distrusts white men, Jed in particular, and intends to fight him and his bureaucracy to protect her people's traditional way of life.
Jed, who was nearly scalped by the Sioux during an attack that claimed his best friend, loathes Indians.
But as the pair clash in a fiery war of wills both come to realize that neither can win until they commit themselves to securing a new future for the Modoc and submit to the mutual love taking root in their hearts.
