His orders from General Carleton are to force the Navajo to surrender by whatever means necessary, then make them walk 100 miles to the reservation at Fort Sumner. The year is 1863 and the Southwest is filled with fortune seekers. During the infamous Long Walk, two cavalry soldiers - Ernest Mitchell and James Merrick - take note of the silver jewelry several of the Indians are wearing. Coercing an old, tired Indian, Mitchell and Merrick get a map to the source of the silver - hidden deep within Monument Valley. Once out of the Army, they follow the map on their fateful quest for the secret mine. Bonus feature: 45 min. Harry Goulding and his wife 'Mike' came to Monument Valley in the early 1920's to start a new life. They set up tents to live and work from, establishing a place to trade with the Navajo before building the trading post. Mike Goulding tells about surviving the Great Depression, life with the Navajo, and when she and Harry went to Hollywood to introduce Monument Valley to director John Ford. While starring in Ford's westerns, actors John Wayne, Henry Fonda, Ben Johnson, Harry Carey Jr., and Natalie Wood stayed with the Gouldings.
