Three drovers find two nuns stranded with their wagon and a man they rescued from a native torture device intended to kill him. The man is near death but slowly recovers as the nuns join the drive until they reach the next town. The man is eventually able to talk and provides his name. Sam Barnes, a recently added drover, recognizes him as a Comanchero with an especially bad reputation. A little later the leader of the Comancheros along with a few men stop at the drover camp to tell the drovers they want the man, Maria Jose Chappala, returned to them but Rowdy is unwilling to do so. Chappala tells Rowdy and the lead nun that he was the leader of the Comancheros but he was being replaced so he left - with the group's money. Sam decides to leave the drive but returns later mortally wounded with a knife to warn the drovers and the nuns. Rowdy has till the next morning to decide what action to take and he knows what the nuns expect. Written by Anonymous
