(From the publisher):
Jarel Wade is hired by an old miner to help bring six mules loaded with gold ore out of the high mountain country. As the old man lies dying following an Indian attack, Jarel gives his word to the miner that he will see both the gold and the miner's beautiful daughter to safety. Unknown to the young trapper, a large group of vicious white men want all of the gold for themselves and the Sioux have threatened to kill Jarel on sight for violating their sacred mountains. Since Jarel had given his word to the old miner he knows he has no alternative but to bring both the girl and the gold out, or die in the attempt. Enlisting help from two of his mountain friends, along with the assistance of an ancient runaway slave, and an old Mexican sheepherder, Jarel finally turns to face the group of vicious thieves and murderers on his back trail. It was time to start the dance.
