The blows that fate hands tough thinking, tougher acting, money seeking Stark knock him down but not out and soften him up for a new start with loyal friends -- and a loving wife. He takes his vengeance out on Nella, learns she has double crossed him, loses his gamble on getting a beef herd through to Montana before the winter storms, holes up in the Gallatin Valley, fights Indians, loses more and more of what is left of his herd -- and sticks it out for a chance at success and happiness with Nella. Hairy chested.
