Matt is shot and abandoned by a fugitive Les Dean, whom he was tracking. Matt's horse finds his way to the farm of young widow named Mike Yardner, who, with the help of her dog, finds Matt and brings him to her farm. Matt is recovering, but he does not remember his past. Love is in the air. Separately, Les Dean makes a contract with Mike Yardner's corrupt neighbor to drive her out due to some water rights. The neighbor's words were "I don't like killings, but I've been around them." Les Dean visits Mike and Matt (who still does not recognize Les), but Les changes his mind about the contract and goes to return the deposit. That's when Matt regains his memory. Written by
