The Rawhiders suffering from a dry spell ask Jed Reston permission to graze on his land. Jed offers his vast, heavily-guarded land for grazing after Jed's son Matt whips Commanche Taslatch. Favor learning Taslatch has been framed declines a meal with the Restons. While in Bixby getting supplies, Favor gives Taslatch's son a handful of candy sticks when the store owner ignores him versus two white boys. Upon returning to camp Jed visits them telling Favor to have his herd off Reston's land in 24 hours or he will start killing the herd. Favor's only option is to go south on Comanche land to make the deadline. Favor and Rowdy avoid a lashing and gain access to the Comanche land when Taslatch rescues them. Taslatch is scratching to establish a farm adjacent to Reston and the townspeople are helping Reston stop him. When the store won't give Taslatch a plow he ordered and paid for, Favor steps in to get it for him. As they return it to Taslatch, they find Jed has burned out Taslatch ... Written by David Stevens
