| In shooting his character as a solitary figure against a field of white, Pollack turned Johnson into something bordering on a spiritual experience…
Filmed in the snow-covered vastness of the Utah Rocky Mountains, Robert Redford plays well a deserter from the Mexican War who wages a bitter struggle against the elements and Indians in order to lead a life of solitude…

He heads into the mountains, only to find that there is the wind that never seems to stop… Sometimes he swears he is going insane while the storms that he has never seen screech booming with their thunder… Around him, snow squalls that kill everything that is unprepared… Jeremiah's first winter proves almost fatal because of his inexperience in coping with the harsh Rockies… Fortunately, he meets a real mountain man seasoned to the ways of the wild… Bear Claw takes Johnson in and shares his knowledge with him…

Travelling the untamed wilderness, Jeremiah finds out that it is a land fit only for the savages, and he has seen what they are like… But he has seen worse when he happens upon an Indian massacre of a settler's family or upon a bald man buried to his neck in sand by Blackfeet Indians… And much worse after violating the Crow sacred burial ground while helping cavalry men find some lost settlers…
