Rowdy's going to Wichita to seek justice after two of his drovers are shot, trying to stop a lynching of two Hispanics in former slavery stronghold, Clay County, Missouri, 5 years after the end of the U.S. Civil War. The Kane father/son hanging party killed the accused to revenge the beating death of the abler of the Kane brothers, serving time in the local jail with the lynched men. The surviving brother tried to stop both the lynching and the shooting, but father Morgan refused the disabled Jethroe's pleas. New trail boss Rowdy takes the surviving trail-hand, along with his new Black steer-puncher Simon, to the local sheriff, but he's in cahoots with the Kanes. Written by David Stevens

New trail boss
19 August 2017 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

For the 8th season which didn't have a full run, Eric Fleming had left and Clint Eastwood was the new trail boss. The only others who returned are Paul Brinegar and Steve Raines. Two new regulars David Watson from the United Kingdom and Raymond St.Jacques signed on as drovers.

Watson and another man went to town to celebrate and Clint Eastwood goes after them and finds Watson the only survivor of a lynching party. When he and St.Jacques go to the town for medical assistance for Watson it's a mighty unfriendly place run by corrupt sheriff Simon Oakland and a real bottom feeding deputy Timothy Carey.

Carey may well have been the scariest man on the big and small screen and no exception here. When he's on the screen everyone else is crowded off. Carey and Eastwood never worked together on the big screen so the fight they have is somewhat historic.

The key to all this is a half crazed farmer Jeff Corey and his crippled son Peter Haskell. The climax between all parties is well staged.
