A mountain man who wishes to live the life of a hermit becomes the unwilling object of a long vendetta by the Crow tribe, and proves to be a match for their warriors in single combat on the early frontier.
In 1825, an English aristocrat is captured by Native Americans. He lives with them and begins to understand their way of life. Eventually, he is accepted as part of the tribe and aspires to become their leader.
Jack Crabb is 121 years old as the film begins. A collector of oral histories asks him about his past. He recounts being captured and raised by indians, becoming a gunslinger, marrying an indian, watching her killed by General George Armstrong Custer, and becoming a scout for him at Little Big Horn.Written by

I am, beyond a doubt, the last of the old-timers. My name is Jack Crabb. And I am the sole white survivor of the Battle of Little Big Horn, uh, uh, popularly known as Custer's Last Stand.

I really liked this movie. It was funny, sad, and action-filled. I only have one problem with it, that being they should've talked about his life even after Little Big Horn a lot more. I realize this is fiction, but there were other things they could've included, and followed his entire life. Sure, it may've been longer, but I personally would be willing to watch it all. There are some movies that don't deserve to be as long as they are. This movie deserves to be longer.
