The Texas Frontier, 1865
The Civil War is over and Texas is reluctantly yielding to
the Union soldiers spreading across the state, even into the
dangerous Comanche country. David "Rusty" Shannon, proud
member of a "ranging company" attempting to protect Texas
settlers from Indian depredations, finds that the rangers
are being disbanded. He makes his way home to his land on
the Red River, hoping to take up the life of a farmer and
the hand of the beloved girl he left behind, Geneva Monahan.
But Geneva has married in Rusty's long absence and the
country is filled with hostilesâ€”not just Indians, but
hate-filled Confederates, overbearing Union soldiers, and
army renegades. Rusty's youth as a captive of the Comanches
returns to haunt him when, in pursuit of Indian raiders, he
takes as prisoner Badger Boy, a white child taken from his
murdered parents by a Comanche warrior.
