It's 1864, and the First Michigan Cavalry is stranded in a Virginia forest, choking with smoldering fires and smoke and chilled by the distant cries of falling men. Among those stranded is trooper Jim Rabb, who counts his brother among the casualties, yet still rides his beloved mare Jen with a true soldier's indomitable will to survive. Then one morning Jim discovers that Jen has given birth and by her side is a newborn colt, shaking and afraid, and clinging to his mother for life. The camp is suddenly taken by Confederates, Jen and the colt are stolen, and Jim spurs a horse in a long chase and shoots the fleeing soldier to retrieve the mother and baby. The incident has left him in darkness, afraid, lost, and separated from his brigade, with a dying enemy on his hands. But honoring the Confederate Reb's last wish sparks in Jim a journey of honor and duty toward enlightenment and danger.
