A sweeping epic about a family of three brothers. Most of it takes place between the early 1910s and early 1930s. Colonel William Ludlow is the father of the three, having previously moved his family to the middle of nowhere in Montana because of his discontent with the government's treatment of Native Americans. A Cree friend named One Stab and his family live on the ranch with him. As World War I encroaches upon their lives, the brothers' very different personalities come to light, particularly after the youngest son, intellectual but naive Samuel, brings home his fiancee to meet the family. Before all's said and done, his brothers Alfred and Tristan will fall in love with her too, creating heartache.
