Western Historical with Romantic Elements
Mel Cody, a Cree half-breed, journeys more than a thousand miles to visit his father’s Arizona homeland.
But upon his arrival, Mel intervenes when the local thugs shoot an old man cruelly in the street. The act earns him the enmity of the area’s most powerful rancher, Casper Spool, and Mel wonders if he really has reached the place he’d heard so much about. He considers leaving, but then Rebecca Church arrived in town.
Rebecca is a city girl, strong-willed, but more used to society life than mending fences and tending cattle. When she decides to stay and work a rundown plot of inherited land, she becomes a stumbling block in the path of Spool’s ruthless advance across the territory.
In the face of clear prejudice, Mel decides to help Rebecca by earning his keep as her hired hand. Now with a mutual enemy, and with odds stacked against them, they must stay together and fight for the land and each other.
