Storyline

Tate comes across a deaf and mute Indian boy, who is being hunted by a posse for the killing of a respected rancher. To prevent his being lynched, Tate brings the boy into town himself, and hopes to somehow learn his side of the story. But just about everyone in the town, including the judge, is too anxious to hang the boy quickly, so Tate finds he has to take on the role of defense counsel himself. Written by rbecker28

Deadly Dynamite
16 June 2011 | by (Roseworthy, South Australia) – See all my reviews

The valley that Troy is riding through cracks with the sound of gunfire and soon Troy comes upon a man with a rifle who warns him that a hunting party is out and that it's better he takes the other trail.

However Troy has been in the saddle many days and said he would rather take the shortcut with the result that he runs into the prey and then the hunting party.

The prey turns out to be a familiar animal with a disability that seems to change the situation somewhat. Troy takes the prey into town, after avoiding the hunting party, but the local sheriff is not keen on looking after the situation due to the fact that a popular local man Burt has been killed.
