During the years, 1821-1848, Mexico governed the states of Nuevo Mexico and Alta California, sending north from Mexico City, leaders incompetent to handle the problems of this land in turmoil. But what Mexico and its provinces all had in common was their fear of encroachment by all things American.
Into this land, William MacLeod arrives, seeking help for an injured trapping partner, only to be arrested and shipped to Mexico for trial, and a certain appointment with a firing squad. But his love for the beautiful daughter of a rich land-owner inspires him to escape and attempt to rescue her from the clutches of an Apache warrior to whom she had been sold by the man she was promised to.
Across this panorama of Mexican-American land MacLeod is forced to remain in a country wanting only to rid themselves of him and his American ideals. But to stay he must cross a hostile desert, fight the authorities to search for a fanatical priest with a stolen child, and rescue a woman thrown out of her home for having been raped.
And all the while a beautiful woman plucked from the streets of Vera Cruz watches and waits for him to come to her.
