At the same time Jim Jr. is at an age where he wants to do a man's job rather than help his mother in her café. The Virginian and John Grainger agree to give Jim Jr. a try at Shiloh where he starts in the barn taking over for caustic Dawkins. Jim Sr. makes an appearance at Jessica's café but she spurns his attention. From there he rides to Shiloh where he breaks a mustang that threw Trampas to prove he can do the job. Jim Sr. is an extremely capable man but impatient to succeed and feels luck goes against him. Jim Sr. hopes to get the job of foreman at a ranch rumors have Grainger buying.

His lack of attention to detail creates problems ... Written by Anonymous
