An enjoyable story
21 December 2015 | by See all my reviews

There is a wealthy cattle rancher named Maury Greeve that is holding all the small ranchers hostage by charging a large price to drive their herds to market. He has cornered the market and placed a stop to all others that would help out the smaller farmers. When some of the farmers refuse to bow down to Greeve, they hire a former major, Jeb Stone, to by-pass Greeve and drive their cattle to market. But Greeve is set to put a stop to their actions.

Greeve hires a rough young man named Vance Coburn, that comes from a respectable family but wants the money offered, he will ride with Major Stone and his men and sabotage the cattle drive. But when Vance's father gets wind of his action, the father decides to ride along with the drive and watch his son.

A surprising episode that takes the viewer on a twist that was not expected. With an all-star cast, this episode proved to be an entertaining ride on a cattle drive. Will not give away the ending but the viewer is caught up in the story right to the end.
