Mathew Whitehawk, a half-breed Navajo, is bitten by a rattlesnake and seeks aid at the ranch of Sarah and Luke Grog. Sarah tries to turn Mathew away, but Luke orders her to nurse him back to health. Mathew becomes attracted to Sarah and makes friends with Luke's mute brother, Jesse, but he discovers that Luke's earlier gesture of friendship was merely a trap. Luke invites Mathew to go hunting and then turns him loose in the forest without food or water and hunts him down the way he hunted and killed 16 other Indians. When Luke finally corners him, Mathew sees a rattlesnake, grabs it, and uses it as a whip to kill Luke.
