A young boy, Running Crane, longs to capture a fine horse of his own, and can’t help dreaming of owning the legendary stallion known as ‘the spirit horse’. He is separated from the rest of his group on a horse raid gone bad, and only he sees the spirit horse alone on the prairie. The boy tries to succeed in doing what the warriors have failed to do – capture and tame the majestic stallion.
