Storyline

Wishbone buries his brother "alive" to keep Kiowas from killing him for romancing the stony chief's wife. T.J. turns out to be a comical embarrassment: a pot fixer whose customers fight to scalp him for his shoddy tinking, which is his ploy for woman chasing. For years, trail cook Wishy's fellow drovers heard the cook laud his misplaced little brother's prowess as a warrior, politician, you name it. But angering the Kiowa at the moment is deadly serious, because the tribe is divided over signing a treaty. Young braves oppose old Chief Wankawa inking the doc. Written by David Stevens

Quotes

Gil Favor: It takes three things to make a trail drive: cattle, horses and men. And some say two because a man without a horse is no man at all. There are mornin's when I think a horse without a man would be better. I should know men by now, but I keep learnin'. I'm Gil Favor, trail boss.
