Cheyenne trades a horse for a Comanche captive who he spots as being white. He tries to convince the boy of his good heritage in spite of some of the train members and keeping everyone in his charge safe against ambush from Apaches. After a day or two with the train, the boy Alan Horn tells Cheyenne he overheard the Apache say they were waiting to ambush the train at Kill Devil Pass.
