In 1874, 23-year-old signal corpsman John Philip Clum (Audie Murphy) was appointed Indian agent for the San Carlos Apache reservation in Arizona. In the face of hostility and opposition from the Native American populace, the Army, and his own agency, Clum determinedly won their trust and helped establish a progressive system of self-rule.
