Carlisle McMillan, originally from California, travels to the High Plains and decides to settle in the town of Salamander, South Dakota. There he learns the trade of a master carpenter and is drawn to two very different women, Gally Devereaux, a local waitress, and Susanna Benteen, a beautiful drifter, rumored to be a witch. Threatened with losing his land and newly remodeled home, Carlisle fights against planned development that would take a highway right through his property. Sam Freed's deep voice is reminiscent of storytellers of old. His suitable alterations of tone add lyricism, reinforcing the evocative depictions of the stark yet picturesque landscape.
