Not a razzledazzling Cat Dancing but a more modulated story set in the Colorado mountains at the turn of the century when Elizabeth, on the shortest of acquaintances, marries seemingly austere John MacNair of the Gray Eagle Ranch. But he's the least of her problems even if he's slow to show his true feelings; there's a troublesome Indian boy, said to be his, shunted back and forth to his grandmother; and there's his unregenerate father, dying of cancer, whom a dread-ful woman is determined to marry in order to get her hands on the ranch. . . . A sidesaddle western with just the right show of sentiment and no folksy flimflam.
