A stranger, not happy with the changing times and unwilling to accept the fact that "sod busters" are moving into the land, resorts to taking a job with the Starrett's when things get rough. He doesn't last long because Ryker invites him to work at his ranch. But even Ryker's ways are too tame for this cowboy, and he's out for revenge. Written by
Mom says that Mr. Ryker and the cowboys hate us just because we're different. She says hating for that kind of reason is the worst thing a man can do.
Well, it's bad, Joey. But there's worse things. Like when a man hates for money. When he gets paid to hate. When he puts money in his pocket with one hand and shells in his gun with the other.

I just love all these episodes. I thought they were very well done...The drama was excellent. It's interesting to note just how much power Shane had on the farm. He made some of the decisions that Tom should have made, and Tom didn't say a thing about it...such as giving Ryker back his calf. In all rights, Tom could have refused to let him do it...but Shane had some sort of pull with the family. What was it that was said? Shane's pretty tight with the family...Yep...
I really like Ryker's character. He's tough, but honest. It shocks me every time I watch this episode the way Ryker just comes in, picks up the shovel, and starts undamming the creek...It really shows that though he hates sod-busters...he respects honesty. I think that deep down he had a lot of respect for Shane as well...
Like I said, another excellent episode.
