A coonskin-hat-wearing, fur-trapping frontiersmen (Robert Taylor) is set on making his fortune in the Northwest Territory. But that's easier said the done, especially when he passes through Barren River, Kentucky, and meets Mary Stuart Cherne (Eleanor Parker). She's a beautiful woman with love in her eyes and wedding bells on her mind. Will she be successful in taming the wild trapper--and can he resist her charms? Frontier action and screwball comedy mix in this delightful take on the Western genre.
