The film follows former senator William Tudlock (Kirk Douglas) as he leads a wagon train along the Oregon Trail from Missouri with the help of hired guide Dick Summers (Robert Mitchum). After several accidents which cost settlers lives, a mutiny of sorts develops and his position is overtaken by Lije Evans (Richard Widmark). Soon, different factions develop amongst the train as they try to survive their trek to Oregon.
The film is notable for being the first big-budget western since 1930's The Big Trail to show pioneers lowering a wagon train over a cliff with ropes.
