Storyline

Kansas, 1868. A wagon train is attacked by a band of Lakota Sioux led by the young and athletic warrior Tokalah. The attractive, red haired Anna Brewster-Morgan and her friend Sarah White are on this wagon train too. When Tokalah noticed a terrified Anna with a Bible, he thinks this is an omen. Despite killing the other passengers of the wagon train, only Anna and Sarah may continue their voyage. The next day Anna and Sarah are kidnapped by Tokalah. At first terrified of her captors, the unhappily married Anna eventually falls in love with the noble, honorable Tokalah. After a year's captivity, Sarah is returned to her own people. Anna now must choose between her new life with Tokalah and her previous existence as the wife of farmer Daniel Morgan. Written by Robert

Trivia

Historical records show that Anna Brewster, who was born on December 10th, 1844, married James Morgan in 1868 at the urging of her brother Daniel. One month after that, Sioux Indians raided her farm, wounded her husband and took her captive. On their way back to their village, the Sioux traded Anna to a band of Cheyenne Indians who already owned another captured white woman named Sarah White. Anna Brewster Morgan went to live with the Cheyenne and married one of their Chiefs with whom she became pregnant. Roughly one year after her capture, Anna was found by General George Custer. She was returned to her husband, James Morgan. She gave birth to a half-Indian son, Ira, who fell ill and died at age two. The Morgans had a daughter, Mary and two sons, Claud and Glen. Unhappy in her marriage to James, Anna left him and went to live with her brother, Daniel Brewster. After her divorce from James Morgan, Anna lived under a lifelong stigma because of her past with the Cheyenne. Later in life, she was admitted to a mental hospital where she died in 1902. She was buried next to her son Ira. See more »

An Awesome Movie
20 April 2004 | by audreybeaversSee all my reviews

Can't tell you how many times I have watched this movie and never seem to tire of it. Michael Greyeyes has always been one of my favorite American Indian actors. He is incredibly talented and easy on the eyes. Would like to know how to find the book or source this was taken from as it appears to be based on a true story. There should be more movies and documentaries covering the true history of American Indians as there is a such a severe lack of education and misinformation. This movie at least shows the injustices our First People have suffered over the years and it's encouraging that it reveals the true side of Custer and all those who supported him in their alarming mission to exterminate American Indians. I highly recommend it for everyone!
