Newly orphaned fourteen-year-old Will Braddock embarks upon a quest to determine his own destiny. He seeks work on the first transcontinental railroad. A mixed-blood Cheyenne youth, whom he rescues from quicksand, gives Will two eagle talons in thanks. The talons save Will’s life, and he’s convinced they are lucky. When his feisty young lady friend is kidnapped by Indians, Will decides to risk his own future to free her from captivity.
