Brief Synopsis

In this Western from Louis L'Amour's library of sagebrush sagas, Tom Selleck and Sam Elliott, brothers on opposite sides in the Civil War, return home to find that their younger brother, Jeffrey Osterhage, their two sisters, and Elliott's sweetheart, Katharine Ross (his subsequent real-life wife), have been abducted by a ragtag band of renegades led by Geoffrey Lewis, a rebel officer unable to accept the Confederacy's defeat. Their plan is to exchange the prisoners for guns and ammunition from arms merchant Gene Evans so that they can continue to fight against the Union. Much of the same cast and crew worked previously on the two-part adaptation of L'Amour's "The Sacketts" (1979). One of the now-rare TV Westerns, it was cited for special recognition at the first TV-Movie Awards from the Locarno Film Festival in 1983.
