A powerful drama about the conflict between the homesteaders hewing a perilous existence from the stubborn sod and the ambitious and often unscrupulous town builders with their secret ties to the burgeoning railroads. Amid this backdrop is the passionate love story of a fragile aristocratic newlywed, Aura Lee, who is shocked by the rigor of the Kansas plains and her strong but dangerously self-righteous husband, Daniel. Together they stand against the challenges of the land, determined to stay together and retain their property. But there are those who are just as determined to tear the couple apart and gain their land.
