There are two kinds of traps in the Old West. One is the kind that Preacher and his buddy, Charlie, use to catch a mountain-load of fur pelts. The other is the kind that Charlie steps into--a trap set by a low-life gambler and his seductive partner in crime to swindle Charlie out of his fur money. Preacher hates to see a good friend get robbed. So he sets off after the grifters--on a riverboat bound for New Orleans. First, he infiltrates the criminal underworld of the French Quarter. Then, he's enslaved on a pirate ship heading straight to hell. Now there's only one way out for Preacher. Start a mutiny. Take over the ship. Then return to New Orleans to reunite Charlie with his money--and not to get butchered in the process.
