At the age of 121, Jack Crabbe (Dustin Hoffman) tells the story of his life. When he was ten years old, his family was killed by the Pawnee Indians. Cheyenne Indians saved him and raised him as one of their own. Throughout his life, Crabb is torn between the two worlds. He has close associations with Wild Bill Hickok and General George Custer. He marries twice; Olga, a Swedish woman who is abducted by Indians, and Sunshine, an Indian woman who bears him a child.
