Along the way, he meets and falls in love with a beautiful, young woman named Snow Rose, a member of a small Native American tribe with a village not too far from Sundown City. But everything changes overnight when One-Arm Bill learns of John's affection for Snow Rose, kidnaps her, and flees into the surrounding countryside.
