Brothers in Arms

When a wagon train encounters a pair of Arapaho warriors, some of the men insist on a rash, preemptive strike against the warriors. To calm them down, Jim Bridger relates the incredible tale of how he and a lone Shoshone brave named Washakie nearly killed each other but ended up saving each other’s lives instead. As the story goes, Jim and Washakie are hunting the same elk when they are suddenly ambushed by their common enemy, the Blackfeet. To survive the day, Jim and Washakie must overcome their natural suspicions of each other and work together to find a way to escape. Though some of the men in Bridger’s wagon train remain skeptical, he convinces them that every Native American doesn’t mean them harm.
