Jon Hall stars as legendary frontiersman Kit Carson in this action-packed western. When Carson is asked to guide a wagon train of settlers through hostile Indian Territory to California, he reluctantly accepts the job. Accompanied by Captain John Fremont(Dana Andrews) and a squadron of U.S. Cavalry, they suffer repeated attacks by Shoshone warriors armed with rifles supplied by the Mexican Army. Between raids, Carson and Fremont find time to court the same beautiful homesteader (Lynn Bari). The battle sequences are well staged by veteran serial director George B. Seitz (LAST OF THE MOHICANS).
