Rowdy and Pete, scouting ahead on the cattle trail, come across a runaway horse-drawn wagon that is carrying a mother and her two teenage children. Favor insinuates himself into their situation. He has a doctor brought in from the nearest town for the ill mother, who soon dies. Favor learns that the family has a father who was jailed for bank robbery, but has escaped from jail and has a $1000 reward on his head. Favor and the trail drive's wrangler take the teenagers to town to be with their aunt, but soon a concurrence of events leads to an explosive conclusion: a pair of bounty hunters are trailing the family to find the father; the father has returned and is holding Favor hostage so his children will be delivered to him; the teenage girl refuses to leave with her fugitive father; and the bounty hunters are waiting outside to apprehend the father.
