Matt, Chester, and Doc come across a badly beaten Indian boy on the prairie. There's no clear reason for the assault, except that it's food-gathering season for the Kiowa, plus ornery rancher Traych has had some of his herd stolen. So Matt has to sort all this out.

It's an average episode, with a number of conflicting characters. There's also a liberal message from Matt regarding the value of Indian lives; recall, this is a period in the US when the Civil Rights movement was gaining momentum. Watch for Ken Curtis as a half-breed Indian scout and still a long way from hayseed Festus Hagen. There's some suspense as to who roughed up the Indian boy and why. But I gather the final roaring fist-fight was to inject some action into an otherwise rather tame episode.
