Trader Eli Henderson who organized the train offers to trade knives and tobacco for furs while his associate Pinto secretly mentions they have powder and guns to trade later. 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. When Cheyenne tells Henderson they will take a different route, Henderson disagrees as that is where he is to trade the rifles for sale hidden amongst the wagons.

Cheyenne Bodie: Why did I go back to my own people? That what you want to know? I had to make up my mind whether I was Indian or white. It wasn't easy. The only people I knew, the only friends I had were the Cheyenne; but that didn't make me an Indian. When I grew to understand this, I left the lodges of the Cheyenne.

Excellent Story
12 April 2011 | by (Valencia, Spain) – See all my reviews

This was a very good episode of Cheyenne. It features Michael Landon as a young Anglo who had lived with the Apaches for many years and was now friends with Cheyenne. Cheyenne is the wagon master for a wagon train led by character actor Peter Whitney, who usually played a villain. Another interesting member of the cast is Richard Garland, an excellent character actor who plays the role of Lyle Gordon, a drifter that walks into the wagon train and becomes the wild card. Is he a good guy or a bad guy?

Michael Landon is excellent as a sensitive kid who has to choose between right and wrong even though the people on the wagon train do not trust him. Lyle Gordon is also excellent as a suspicious character who is a straight shooter and good guy. Peter Whitney is at his conniving and malicious best. As you can guess, when all the characters are strong, it makes for a compelling story.
