Bret's venture to aid an endangered beauty, to save her father's property, throws Bret, alone, in the middle of a gang of vicious robbers hunting for their buried take near Lonesome, Colorado. Riding into Lonesome, Bret is warned by the town's road sign, on which "Welcome" is crossed out and "Behave" painted in. Lonesome's citizens are consumed with revenge for the bank robbers (especially Richard Reeves, "Billy the Kid versus Dracula", "Dance with Me Henry") - and greed for the missing loot. Written by

Bret mentioned that he was "hog-tied". Actually, he's not. To be truly hog tied all four limbs have to be tied together, and in humans, that's usually behind the back. See more »
The game of poker has only one serious drawback. You can lose. Denver hadn't been very lucky for me. I'd been second best every night for a week, to where paying my hotel bill was a tight squeeze.

Lonesome is the name of the town. During a losing streak, Bret encounters a lady with a hat box and then gets knocked in the head. Being knocked in the head must have been common in the 1870s. Returning the hat, Bret stumbles onto robber Maxwell, who steals his clothes. Bret is a curious sight walking down Main Street in prison stripes. He washes dishes to earn enough to get into a poker game, then goes after the convict who stole his clothes. A funny scene is Bret under the bed in which Maxwell is napping. Buried money, $120,000! Bret and Maxwell have their reunion at the Mills place. Old man Mills thinks the money is his because it was buried on his property.
