Sioux on the warpath
23 March 2017 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Quite unexpectedly the Sioux are on the warpath as they attack the Sherman station with all the occupants barely surviving. But the fiancé of John Lupton might not be so lucky. She's on board a stagecoach that left Sherman station and he's wanting Slim and Jess to help find her.

Lupton proves to be a most disagreeable trail companion especially for Robert Fuller. But both Fuller and John Smith figure out that Lupton isn't being level with them.

There's also a power struggle in the Sioux nation with Michael Pate, the son of the recently deceased chief who wants to first find and kill his father's murderer. It's amazing how Australian born Michael Pate has played so many American Indians, most notably Chief Vittorio in the John Wayne classic Hondo.

And Lupton is far from the peace loving Tom Jeffords in the Broken Arrow series for which he is most known.

Rather easy to figure out who the bad guy is here, still a western with a lot of excitement.
