This time the Major, Hawks, and Wooster are returning to St. Louis by stagecoach from San Francisco while Flint is going by sea with Angela, a Latin dancer. When a patron tries to kiss Angela after her last dance, Flint and friend Caleb Jamison start a fight resulting in a broken arm for Caleb. Caleb was to drive the initial stage run to St. Louis to win a US Post Office Mail contract. Having previous experience as a driver, Flint agrees to drive the stage whose passengers include Adams, Hawks, Wooster, and others including a woman who appears to be Angela but she denies it. When the stage reaches New Mexico the woman and three other passengers hijack the stage. They want Flint and others to "accidently" drive the stage into Mexico to smuggle weapons to revolutionaries there. Flint and Caleb have to decide whether to help while Angela admits to Flint who she really is. Caleb is also faced with financial ruin for him and his father due to the lost contract.
