The rich drawl of veteran narrator Peter Ganim puts listeners right on the back of Rusty's white stallion in this western from Max Brand. Rusty Sabin, a white boy with red hair, has spent his childhood with the Cheyenne Indians, but now that he is in his 20s, he decides to leave the Cheyenne. Along the course of his journey, however, the riverboat he was aboard becomes grounded and puts Rusty face to face with the fugitive and thief Bill Tenney. Listeners are sure to enjoy this classic from Brand about a young man caught in the middle of two cultures.
Rusty Sabin, born to white parents, was brought up by the Cheyenne Indians who had given the young red-headed boy the name Red Hawk. His ability to heal the sick and make strange magic were widely honored throughout the tribe. But in his twenties, Red Hawk set out to take his place among white people.
When Rusty and his stallion named White Horse were nearly at the frontier post of Fort Marsden, the river boat he was riding in was grounded, and a man called Bill Tenney comes to his rescue. Rusty doesn't know much about the white man's ways -- especially a white man like Bill Tenney, a thief and a fugitive. Tenney is only interested in one thing -- Rusty's white stallion, considered sacred among the Cheyennes. Meanwhile, Major Marsden, who considers Rusty little more than a savage himself, is determined to come between Rusty and his sweetheart, Maisery -- and the Cheyennes do all they can to compel Rusty to return to his tribe.
