Father-in-law (Stanton) is determined to break up daughter's (Lorraine) sudden marriage to Burt Harvey because he considers Burt a coward who quit the war in the midst of the Battle of Gettysburg after his brother was killed beside him. The episode begins with the couple's marriage at the drovers' camp. Burt had joined the drive with his 40 head of cattle to travel a short distance with Rowdy's herd and then switch off to a ideal valley where he intends to homestead with his wife. Issues of Indian raids and the lack of water change the route the drive must take. Also complicating things is that Stanton, who has 800 of his cattle mixed in with the main herd, suddenly shows up insulting Harvey and insisting that Lorraine return home. However, a surprising revelation makes for a happy ending, reconciling Stanton, Harvey and Lorraine into one happy family. And water is found. Written by chipe
