A mix of values
24 May 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of those episodes that makes a person go...wow! We watch as an Indian tries to do the right thing. After saving Ben's life, he talks them into taking some land and becoming farmers. He's not too happy with the idea, but, but his beloved wife whom he loves very much and believes in God talks him into it.

This is one of those episodes that really tells the facts of life. We may think they are getting along, but are they really? When a person is raised to believe one thing, can they really change their beliefs enough to live a different way?

The events near the end are shocking and sad. But that's reality, folks. That's one think I like about Bonanza, Gunsmoke, and Rawhide - the truth is that sometimes the good guys don't win in the end.
