Claude Dupre and his trappers are down from the mountains and desperate for some female companionship. They are attempting to break into the brides' dorm when they are met by the Bolt brothers and Aaron Stempel. Soon a huge brawl erupts between the two factions only to be stopped by the appearance of Sheriff Emmett Wade. He is a no nonsense law officer hired by Seattle to restore law and order. He assumes the job and his iron hand of justice comes down so hard that it's not order he's brought to Seattle but oppression. Jason and Aaron will have to work together to keep their friends out of jail and get rid of Sheriff Wade while staying within the letter of the law. Written by
