He spends the rest of the journey convincing the boy of his good heritage and keeping everyone in his charge safe against ambush from Apaches whose only desire are the rifles for sale hidden amongst the wagons.

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.
