Alledged wayward adolescent Louisiana gentleman Michael ‘Mike’ Blueberry is dumped by his family with a Wild West uncle. The brute’s only ‘motivation’ is a stick. After a nearly fatal encounter in the brothel with Wallace ‘Wally’ Sebastian Blount, Mike is left for dead in the desert. A Chiricuahua (Apache) medicine man’s family finds, nurses and initiates him. After the shaman’s death, Mike returns and becomes the town’s honest ‘deputy’ marshal. Gold fever strikes, with staged Indian brutalities to allow rivaling fiends to invade their sacred mountains.
