The wagon train comes down out of the Rockies into a lush valley where the livestock can graze and the people can rest a couple days before Christmas. A couple of the men are making preparations for Christmas with gifts and decorations. After the members of the train have gone to sleep the Ute Indians attack. Three people are killed and some wounded while the Utes lose five braves and several wounded. The dead include the two men making preparations for Christmas. After the attack Mrs. Sherman notices her little boy Jimmy is missing. The men search the train with no luck while also tending to the wounded. By the end of the next day on Christmas eve the Major goes alone to search for Jimmy in the area around the train's camp. He stumbles upon Jimmy and the Ute Chief's son sound asleep at the same time as the Chief. At that point they must decide the future for themselves and the people they both lead.- Written by Anonymous
Almost Christmas eve, the wagon train deals with a happy time, the perils that go with hostile Indians and a little lost boy who may have already been captured by those same hostiles.- Written by DrDOS
