Storyline

While on night duty Pete and Jim see fireworks in the sky. They trace it to young David Colby shooting roman candles by himself. Once they prove they mean David no harm, he tells them Indians killed his folks and burned their farm with David escaping the burning barn. He had started out alone to Eberley to find his uncle. The drovers become attached to the young boy showering him with attention and gifts. Favor goes along with it but he has misgivings about the boy's story - especially the part about Indians. Favor and Pete take David to Eberley where the long time Sheriff tells them there is no Colby there. Favor takes the boy back toward camp but stops, cuts a switch, and tells David he wants the truth. He says he is looking for his dad a bounty hunter. Favor sends Pete to return him home which Pete does but not before David tries to run again saying Pete wants to kill his dad. At David's home Pete walks into the hands of three outlaws. The leader wants revenge for being kneecapped ... Written by Anonymous

Quotes

Gil Favor: On a trail drive, a man can find the things he wants - a sense of God's good earth, the room to move in, a job to be done. Of course, there's not always enough water, and you can't always choose your own company. There's some that say that's all that's wrong with Hell. That's up to me to handle - the good and bad. I'm Gil Favor, trail boss.
