To survive, a band of Mormons traveling across the vast Utah desert must learn to collaborate with the people they meet on the trail: bandits, dance hall girls and native Americans--and the seasoned Western tracker they have hired as Wagonmaster. Ward Bond, Harey Carey, Jr. and Academy Award winner Ben Johnson star as the Mormon patriarch looking for a new life on the frontier and the two horse traders who lead the Mormons to the San Juan River valley. Now, these very different people will have to find a way to work together to survive a trek across the desert and a perilous crossing of the untamed Colorado River in this Western classic.
