Product Description:

The second of the terrific Stewart/Mann Westerns is characteristic of their pairings: adult themes played out against prairie vistas in which betrayal and violence can erupt at any time. Formerly a vicious Missouri raider, Stewart now leads a wagon train through Indian raids and hijackings to the new boom town of Portland where he becomes embroiled in the conflict between wealthy miners and farmers.

Plot Synopsis:

Rugged adventure story, adapted from Bill Gulick's novel "Bend of the Snake," about a group of early settlers, led by James Stewart, who face great hardships as they travel by wagon train through the American wilderness in an attempt to get to the Oregon territory.
