With the railroad fast approaching North Fork, Lucas finds himself under pressure to sell his ranch to Willard Prescott, a land speculator. He's offered Lucas a bribe and when it's refused, makes it clear that he has every intention of getting the land one way or another. Mark and Lou don't quite understand why Lucas just doesn't sell up as the money he's been offered is generous and would allow him to buy land nearby. Lucas however will stand his ground, even when Prescott shows up with his armed thugs. Written by
