Drifter Jeff Durant, notoriously known as a drunk, looks for work but is refused by townsfolk. Even a shady buffalo hunter, known to encroach upon tribal lands, doesn't want him. Jeff, spotting Bruce Millikan playing the mouth organ, joins him on his own mouth organ. Flint, needing a driver for the Millikan wagon after Clete suffers a broken leg, hires Jeff despite his drunken reputation. Jeff, hearing Bruce play a song from the school he taught at, learns that Bruce's real father, Jeremy Dow, died in a fire at the school as a hero. Jeff realizes Bruce is his son and his wife is on the train. Jeff leaves the train to join the buffalo hunters but returns to give his son his German mouth organ. While doing so he faces Hester, his wife, who recognizes him. He leaves but decides to return to be with his son. While teaching Bruce to hunt elk they see Jubal Ash and his hunters. Flint and Hawks find a dead horse belonging to the Arapaho. They find Jeff but Bruce is missing. An Arapaho brave tells the men the Arapaho want Jubal, who killed Iron Hand's son, for the boy. Unable to locate Jubal in the rain, Jeff decides to take Jubal's place to save his son, dying by fire for real this time.- Written by enzechen357
