What happens if you cross-breed a Hereford Bull and a Longhorn? Martha Price, an English farmer newly arrived in America, is confident it will produce a superior breed of cattle. The ranchers of Texas however are sceptical.
This unusual and colourful Western, successor to Andrew V McLaglen's Shenandoah, stars James Stewart as the saddle tramp entrusted with the delivery of the prize bull Vindicator to his new home.
