An elderly woman, Mary Budgeon, on the wagon train is kidnapped by Indians during the night. The next day Bill Hawks and a priest, Father John Bernard, ride out to talk to the Indians who arrive with Mary who is unharmed. She says they will only return her when the chief's seriously ill son is taken by the wagon train to the doctor in Wayne and cured. But some travelers led by Ben Gill returning to Wayne don't want to do anything for the young Indian regardless of whether it costs the woman her life. The Indians attacked Wayne a couple of years earlier resulting in many people killed in Wayne. The priest, who is going through doubts of whether he is worthy of his calling, tries to help the Indian. Duke returns with Dr. Porter by telling him they have a sick woman. At first he refuses to look at the Indian but relents. After he checks the boy, he tells Bill what is wrong with the boy. They cannot take the boy with them nor can he return to his tribe.
