Abstract:

Letty, a girl from Virginia, is forced to make her home with her cousin Beverly on a desert farm where the wind blows constantly. On her arrival she meets Roddy, an attractive stranger and two cowboys, Lige and Sourdough. Letty later marries Lige. While Lige is away on a roundup, Roddy arrives and takes advantage of Letty's helplessness and she shoots him. She buries his body in the sand, but the strong wind tugs at the grave and uncovers it, driving her mad. Lige returns and Letty tells him what has happened. They look for the body, but the strong wind has covered it once again. They decide to face the wind together.
