Bolt is the general foreman for Tug Mackintosh’s railroad line, which is competing with Sirus Proctor’s railroad to reach Breakneck Pass. Along with a man he befriends in a gunfight, Bolt is charged with the simple task of meeting and bringing Mack’s young bride-to-be to the end of tracks.
Arriving just in time to fend off would-be kidnappers, Bolt is smitten by the enchanting Ariette Ekhard. However, within hours of her safe delivery, Ariette is again in the hands of the kidnappers. Bolt mounts a rescue mission, but this time he and his friends are up against overwhelming odds. Trapped and left afoot with the young, society-bred lady, there’s little hope of an escape. But Bolt has found something worth fighting for. Against such long odds, she may also be worth dying for.
