Inhalt

Trail of the Falcon

North America in 1875/76: After gold is found in the Black Hills, at the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, many greedy gold diggers, adventurers, and land speculators come to the Black Hills area that belongs to the Dakota Indians. Bludgeon, a white man, is on the forefront of people who want to banish the Indians by all means and even does not stop at armed robbery thereby burning down the village of the Indians. In the gold digger town, a cruel battle begins, and in its course Chief Weitspähender Falke kills the speculator Bludgeon in a dramatic showdown. Advancing soldiers prevent the defeat of the white men at the last minute.
