But in a dangerous Gold Rush era California, that is no easy task. Swearing to track down his horse, Mateo becomes an arriero -- leading pack mules through gold rush camps, lightning storms in the Sierra, and risky encounters with crazed miners. But when he learns that his fathers old rancho may be in danger from Yankee squatters, aided by the new American government, Mateo begins to realize that more is at stake than the fate of his horse.
