The men are tired of scouring the brush for mavericks to build a new herd. Rowdy and Favor stumble on a man Jed with a small herd of cattle penned. Favor offers to buy the cattle but Jed initially turns him down but tells Favor he could collect mavericks faster if he worked smarter. Favor offers to pay Jed for helping which Jed accepts. Favor, alone, stumbles across the site of a two-year-old Indian massacre of a wagon train. A name plate in the ruins shows that the wagons were owned by "Lefever & Karse". Until Favor's discovery, no one knew the location of the site, only that the wagon master, Jed Hadley, had deserted the Indian onslaught and was the sole survivor. Hadley buried all the victims, including Lefever along with his money box. Embarrassed by his cowardice, Hadley remained hiding in the vicinity. By coincidence, Karse (who was NOT in that wagon train) and Lefever's mother turn up -- Karse looking for the stolen money that Lefever was transporting for them, and Mrs. Lefever...
