Apologies to any native Americans if the summery is misspelled. This is another great episode from the first season. Many of the characters speak in almost biblical phrases about the land in which they live, obviously stolen from the Apache. The central theme is also biblical in flavour, having property, family, redemption and snakes as central characters.

John Doucette plays a very believable role as a half Indian landowner and Pat Hingle a well worn Sheriff but for me the stars here are Masters Khan and Po ""Grasshopper, be yourself and never fear thus to be naked to the eyes of others. Yet know that men so often mask themselves that what is simple is rarely understood. The dust of truth swirls and seeks its own cracks of entry, And a tree falling in the forest, without ears to hear, makes no sound. Yet it falls".
