A deputy arrives with a warrant for the fugitive Duke Le May who is with the wagon train. The deputy spots Le May and pulls a gun on him causing Le May to shoot and kill the deputy. Adams decides Flint should take Le May to turn him in to the law which is three days away. Flint reluctantly accepts the task as he is good friends with Le May. Le May makes an attempt to escape and finally succeeds while they sleep. Le May's horse throws a shoe forcing him to stop at the only occupied farm left in the area due to a severe drought. There he makes friends with a lonely boy, his older sister, and their pious father. Flint walks in later in the evening as they eat to take back his prisoner. Le May suggest they dig a well to supplement their fading cistern. He suggests dowsing to find water but they are skeptical. The next morning, the kids holding Flint at gunpoint decide Le May should stay to help find water. As they search for water, whose faith will be the strongest. Written by Anonymous
