Cheyenne is in the midst of a powder keg when a Sioux brave brings a bag of gold to town near the Black Hills to pay to heal his wife. The locals want to invade the Sioux territory while Cheyenne and the sheriff try to keep the peace.
In 1868 the government signs a treaty with the Sioux reserving the Black Hills to the Sioux and forbidding whites to cross into the territory. Cheyenne has been working as a freighter but makes his last trip. His friend Matt Kilgore has assumed the job of sheriff. As they talk, the Sioux brave White Crow rides into town looking for help for his sick wife Little Fawn. Cheyenne and Doc Farnsworth return with White Crow to find Little Fawn is in the last stages of tuberculosis. The only help might be to send her to Denver but that is not possible due to a lack of money and her being an Indian. Later, after two men bring in two miners who were shot and scalped, White Crow brings a sack of gold to pay for the trip. The sheriff asks Cheyenne's help in keeping the incident from breaking out into an Indian war. Kilgore is a blood brother to the Sioux. Some men hope to locate where the gold came from, in violation of the treaty by torturing White Crow and Little Fawn. Written by
I thought this was a great episode!! I wonder what ever happened to the huge knife carried by Cheynne Bodie; the one he used to cut the man loose from the Indians, when he was staked down?? This was apparently a Bowie type knife, which appeared to be a real knife. Does anyone really know if it was real or not, or just a prop? E-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you know about movie props, or whether this was a real knife or not. I own a few myself from the movie "The Long Walk Home with Woopie Goldberg." I own the real, blue coffee pot shown in several scenes, and I also own the cookie tin shown sitting on the kitchen counter. I was an extra in the movie in 2 scenes, one of which was cut from the film.
