Thirteen-year-old orphan, Andrew, has raised his beloved horse, Sunday, from a foal, and now Sunday is his pride and joy, and the fastest horse in the San Bernardino valley. But when Andrew, a Mormon, is caught racing him, the Bishop tries to talk Andrew’s uncle into selling Sunday, to take the temptation away from him. The next morning, Sunday has gone, but he has been stolen. The boy makes his way east, searching for his horse which has been taken by the Confederates to use in the Civil War.
