Summary
Big Jake McCandles is a husband who hasn't seen his wife in over 18 years. But he returns home after his grandson is kidnapped by a vicious outlaw gang. While the law gives chase in rickety automobiles, Jake saddles up with an Indian scout and a box of money-- even though paying a ransom isn't how Jake plans to exact good old frontier justice. in "Hondo," Hondo Lane, a dispatch rider for the cavalry, encounters Angie Lowe, a woman living alone with her young son in the midst of hostile Apache territory. She presumes she is safe because the Apaches, under their chief Vittorio, have always left them alone. Later Hondo has a run-in with Angie's good-for-nothing husband and is forced to kill him. When Vittorio captures Hondo to save his life, Angie tells the Apache chief that he is her husband. In order to protect her from forced marriage with one of the Apaches, Hondo reluctantly goes along with the lie
