Storyline

About to set out on a cattle drive, Ben hires a young drifter named Sam Jackson as one of his drovers. What he doesn't know is that Jackson is really outlaw Johnny Logan, who signed on to the drive because he knew it was going to pass near the town of Waycross, and Logan is determined to kill the Waycross sheriff--who is his father.

Father and son: "tough love".
8 February 2006 | by (Concord, New Hampshire U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

--This is a story of a father and son: "tough love". The son riding with the wrong gang as a kid being sent to "prison" for a year by the father, the sheriff of Waycross, and the son wanting revenge on the father. After he gets out of "jail" (the two terms used here), he "signs" up with Ben and Hoss on the trail during their cattle drive with cook Hicks and those just joined prior, being Brazos and his boys. They all ride into town for some fun but encounter Sheriff Logan's "deadline" that reads on the sign: "WARNING, TRAILHANDS FORBIDDEN BEYOND THIS POINT!" Ben asking now, and later in the program, if this be an ordinance by him or the town, with Johnny having some words with the Sheriff too, Ben asking why, Johnny answering: "because he's my father". On another day, Johnny meets Melinda Bowers at Jake Rudebar's Saloon and walks her home to the hotel, but past the deadline, where on his way back he encounters the Sheriff, gets locked up, then out, and who returns on yet another day after Brazos and his boys station Ben, Hoss + Hicks back at the camp, but who overtake the two sentries to ride into town for the grand finale.
