Battle-scarred Confederate veteran, Ethan Edwards, turns up on the remote and dusty Texan homestead of his brother, Aaron in high hopes of finding peace. Instead, the taciturn former soldier will embark on a treacherous five-year odyssey of retribution when the ruthless Chief Scar's murderous Comanche raiding party massacre his family, burn the ranch to the ground and abduct his nine-year-old niece, Debbie.

'A rip-snorting Western, as brashly entertaining as they come' - Bosley Crowther, New York Times
