While on the trail Bronco comes upon a man suffering hallucinations after being bit by a rattlesnake. Bronco treats the bite staying with the man for a couple of days until he recovers. Both men are headed to Plainview but for different reasons. Bronco plans to homestead while the man calling himself Gary Williams is headed there to visit family. Bronco notices Gary is reading the law when he finds a Blackstone Law book in his belongings. They decide to head to Plainview together and perhaps homestead side by side and work together. In Plainview Bronco learns Williams is really John Wesley Hardin known as a killer. After killing a man who drew first, the local Sheriff wants Hardin out of the town but Bronco promises to keep Hardin in check but no one realizes what Hardin is up against due to his family who minister to the public.
