Desperate for water, Gil's drive is forced into a deadly confrontation between the Paneequa tribe and surveyors, over the Lake of the Haunted Hills. The valley's ghostly winds and geysers are sacred to the tribe, while the U.S. Army survey is headed by a stubborn Indian killer Captain, who orders a Paneequa woman tortured. Gil hopes his drover Tasunka, who left the tribe as a teen, can mediate the dispute with minimal bloodshed, but when Gil finds that the local White settlement Heliotrope is a ghost town due to the dispute, the trail boss tells Rowdy to take over the drive in case he is killed.- Written by David Stevens
I only add this until someone can come up with more. This was a very adventurous episode, and obviously meant to be one of the memorable episodes. I vaguely recall it as an adolescent on a black and white antenna view with a fuzzy look that most of us had then. There seemed to be a quest which involved several men, and the regulars were more in the backdrop than usual. There were some fatalities on this quest, the first two being very theatrical and tragic. In the end, the men are told to sacrifice a guilty member of their party (such as in THE WAY WEST), to avoid bloodshed, and further problems develop- Written by drystyx
