Storyline

One of the young cowboys happens upon a man hung upside down, burned, and branded with an "S". The wrangler Rivera who recently joined the drive tells them it is the mark of bandit Sanchez who controls the area with a heavy hand. The young cowboy later spots Rivera gathering seeds. When the young cowboy asks Rowdy about the seeds, he is told they are coyote weed which is poison to men and cattle. The men are nervous about Sanchez and during a problem with the cattle stampeding, Favor is forced to allow the young cowboy be killed to save the herd as Rowdy protests. Rivera poisons the men's food and signals Sanchez. Wishbone finds an antidote to the poison and Rowdy catches Rivera with the poison. Rivera escapes as Sanchez attacks and Rowdy is forced to leave Favor to handle Rivera to save the men and herd. Written by Anonymous

Quotes

Gil Favor: Pushin' cattle up the Sedalia Trail's a thousand miles of aching bones and deep madness. You lose a lot of men. Some men never make it. Sometimes you don't rightly think a man was ever born who could. Well, men fool you sometimes, especially on a cattle drive. I ought to know. My name's Gil Favor, trail boss.
