Captured by Indians, Joel Shelby is tied up and left naked and spread-eagled overnight on a river bank.
The young cowboy was caught by a group of renegade Apaches while he was panning for gold. They plan to return at daybreak to torture and kill him. Beaten, sun baked, and delirious, Joel has plenty of time to think back on his life. Since leaving his ranch, he has been imprisoned in a small town and wrongfully accused of stealing horses, is ambushed by bandits, sees a white girl held captive by Apaches, and is now waiting for a painful death.
Will the cowboy be able to escape and help the girl, or will he meet his fate in the morning? This exciting Western is the first in a series and takes place in 1861.
