Brief Synopsis:
When buffalo return to a distant area, an Indian chief believes the
fulfillment of an old prophecy has come true and his tribe can free
themselves of the white man's rule.  Starr and Randy are sympathetic to his
cause and follow the chief when he sneaks off the reservation in search of
the animals.  But the chief is also being tracked by a cruel bounty hunter,
and the Indian's distrust of all white men leads to a clash which endangers a lonely widow.
