A sad tale about life on the prairie.
25 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Greenhorn Harry Pope has just moved to the prairie from back east and wants to start a new life since the death of his wife. But living alone on the prairie is a new experience for the naive Harry Pope.

He tells Marshal Dillon that at night he is being visited by Indians and he is worried about their actions. Matt is suspicious about Pope's claim but tells him that if they are really Indians to get a rifle and defend himself.

One evening after being harassed again by the so-called Indians, Pope returns fire at them. Instead of an Indian it turns out to be a man named Joe Carter that ends up dying. Now Joe Carter's friends want revenge on the lonely greenhorn.

Philip Coolidge was perfectly cast as the mild and meek greenhorn Harry Pope that brought the aspect of a person that may be over-his-head living by himself on the prairie. His demeanor was a perfect fit for the story. Even though the ending may not be what the viewer wanted, it still was an episode that was entertaining to the end. Good watch.
