Storyline

While sleeping by his campsite, Bill is startled by sounds of movement in the underbrush. He investigates and finds a young boy who is so frightened that he can't talk. On the road to town, Bill is confronted by two henchmen who try to force Bill to turn the boy over to them; in the ensuing gunfight, Bill kills one of the gunslingers. Bill learns that the lad's father had a gold mine and just struck it rich; he reasons that the miner had been killed by the henchmen and the only witness to the crime is the boy. Bill must find proof to link the town's criminal element with the miner's murder before the sheriff has to arrest him for killing one of the owlhoots. Written by David Bassler
