Two reunited brothers roam the Wild West of the 1880s on the trail of their sister, abducted by the Cheyenne a decade before.

Developed from a 1976 made-for-TV movie of the same title, The Quest featured pretty photography with not-so-pretty violence- when it was first aired pressure groups claimed the series revelled in excessive violence.

Kurt Russell and Tim Matheson starred as the Baudine brothers; Morgan Baudine (Russell) was raised by Indians for eight years before being reunited with his brother Quentin (Matheson), a naive medical student.
