After killing a rouge grizzly and fighting hostile Indians on his own, he becomes known as Grizzly Killer and is respected throughout the West. Along with his dog, Jimbo, whom the Indians call the Great Medicine Dog, he finds Running Wolf, an injured Ute warrior, and together they fight off a hostile war party. They rescue two Shoshone sisters from the brutality of a French trapper and take them as wives.

He wants to ensure his family and friends will survive in a world he is sure will change. After five years of living in the wild and dangerous Rocky Mountains, Zach Connors is concerned his Indian family will not be prepared for the eventual settling of the West. Zach has seen the Indian tribes pushed from their homes in Kentucky and Tennessee because they would not learn to live in the white man’s world. After a grizzly kills his pa, Zach struggles to survive a cold and brutal winter alone.

Zach Connors is a man content spending his life in the wilds of the Rockies. However, in a land with no law, he must fight renegade white men, hostile Indians, and the wilderness itself to survive. He forges a home in which to raise his family, but to keep them safe, it will take more than the might of his guns or the strength of his will.

Zach along with his Shoshone allies save these men from certain death at the hands of the Crow. Having nothing left, and feeling desperate for a new start, the men then dig for gold, angering the sacred and mighty Spirit of the Mountain. By 1836 the beaver trade was starting to wind down, and trappers like Zach Connors, known as Grizzly Killer, were having to find other ways to get the supplies they had become accustomed to. Zach had found gold nuggets in a creek in the sacred mountains of their home, which he used to make up for the lack of beaver pelts. The Utes and Shoshone alike believe the gold in the creek was given to Grizzly Killer, but no one was allowed to dig for it.

Though the formula of “See camper, See camper die” gets more than a little tiresome, there are a couple of memorable moments. One is when the bear wants one victim so badly, he levels a towering ranger station! Among the sillier moments is one in which a female ranger says she is going to soak her feet in the stream, yet proceeds to strip down to bra and panties and let her hair out of its ponytail! There are campy bits like heads, arms and so forth being yanked off and plenty of fake blood spewing here and there. There are worse “Animals on the rampage” flicks, but this is hardly a strong piece of movie-making.

They find that the dangers of the civilized world – although different – can be just as deadly as the dangers of the mighty Rocky Mountains. The dwindling population of beaver leaves Zach Connors, his family, fantasy farm names and friends no choice but to leave Blacks Fork. They make a new home to the west, in a high mountain meadow along the Bear River. But the dreams had stopped once they reached their new home to the west.
