Synopsis by Tana Hobart

When a Native American is falsely accused of the brutal rape and beating of a white girl, the white community essentially becomes a lynch mob--led by the victim's step-father. Unaware that it is the leader of their anarchistic group who is guilty of the crime, the mob wants only revenge. When the brother of the accused is slain, the Native American community is also out for revenge. A somewhat hackneyed and violent plot, but well done.
