Storyline

At a well, which young bucks on the warpath may have poisoned, McCord and a female doctor are surrounded by the warriors. McCord was escorting her to a colleague's desert office, but they came across the male physician, killed by arrows. The pair have used up almost all their water, caring for the wounded cavalryman they found with Dr. Marshal. Already at the oasis are a duplicitous pair of prospectors, and a tiny old man with kyphosis. Written by David Stevens

Well...
20 February 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I didn't see that coming! I was wondering when they were going to figure out if the water was poisoned or not. I was thinking that one of the men would get so thirsty he'd try to drink it, though...

I do wonder about using poisoned water for other purposes though. Wouldn't the poison seep in the man's skin and kill him anyhow?

Oh, one other thing about the water. What agony would it be to stand right beside a well full of water and not be able to take a drink? That would be enough to make a person mad.

So, when I saw the truth of the water, I did't expect it. I thought Luke was being straight up. After all, he warned Jason...but then I guess that warning was so he could get that money. Had Jason tasted that water, the men would have known the truth and been able to ride on...
