Storyline

Lucas McCain and his son Mark make their way to the ranch they've just bought but get quite a rude reception. Two cowhands working for big-time rancher Oat Jackford, Billy Lehi and Sam Montgomery, tell Lucas that he's not welcome. Jackford has been using the land to graze some of his cattle and has every intention of continuing to do so. When Lucas doesn't show much enthusiasm for their proposal, he's beaten and the house is burned to the ground. Lucas needs to show them and Jackford that he's not going to get pushed around.

This is an enjoyable episode as the McCains are staking their claim to a ranch outside of North Fork. However when Lucas and Mark arrives at the ranch house they are met by two cowboys that work for a wealthy rancher named Oat Jackford (Harold J. Stone). The two cowboys harass Lucas in order for their employer to obtain the ranch land. They take Lucas's gun and burn his house to the ground. Lucas is set on meeting Mr Jackford and settling this matter man to man.

There are some great scenes in this episode. From when Mark is let alone and is trying to sleep to the the meeting of Lucas and Jackford- it just pure entertainment. A nice episode for the second offering in the series.
