Captain Boyd, a soldier during the Mexican-American War, is stationed at a remote outpost after an act of cowardice. Into the outpost staggers a stranger, Colqhoun, a half-starved Scot who had been traveling with a group of settlers until they ran out of food -- and were forced to consume one another. Colqhoun barely escaped becoming an hors d'oeuvre himself.

Colqhoun's tale has ramifications beyond cannibalism and the will to survive. An old Indian myth called Weendigo states that a man who eats the flesh of another steals that person's strength, spirit and very essence. His hunger becomes an insatiable craving: the more he eats, the more he wants, and the stronger he becomes. There can never be enough, and death is the only escape.

Boyd and the others soon get up close and personal with the Weendigo legend after discovering that Colqhoun holds an incredible secret, one that eventually will present Boyd with the ultimate carnivorous conundrum: whether to eat dinner or be dinner.
