When Coop brings Kim Case to her home town of San Saba, he finds the people there in fear after recent Indian raids, and the nearby Army fort ready to attack. Army Major Starbuck's adopted son, Lance Starbuck, an old friend of Coop's, is an Indian himself whom Kim has long been in love with despite the strong opposition of her uncle, whose wife and children were killed by Indians. It is learned that the Sioux have teamed with the Crow and Kiowa to fight under Comanche Quanah Parker in retaliation for massacres led by notorious anti-Indian leader Santiago Quesada. Parker lays a trap for the Army and also attacks the wagon train stealing a wagon of rifles. Written by rbecker28

A tense situation
16 August 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Robert Fuller delivers Jena Engstrom to her uncle Joseph Wiseman. But it's a tense situation in the town of San Saba where they're from. The Indians are uniting Comanches and Kiowas and others because of the raids of scalp hunter Santiago Quesada. Caught in the middle of all this is Perry Lopez the adopted son of army post commander Edward Binns. He does some scouting for the army and some courting of Engstrom.

When he gets killed things threaten to blow up in a general Indian war. Will reason prevail and will the people be able to capture the notorious Quesada.

A lot more violence than usual in a Wagon Train story, still it's a good one.
