One of the better episodes in the series.
10 December 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

At the beginning of the episode, Pa Rawlins is dying and is gather by his family. Noah, and his wife Ellie, and Noah's brother Jace. Pa makes Jace promise to help work the ranch before he dies and even splits the property between both brothers. Pa even tells Noah to help Jace out or he will become a 'Saddle-Tramp'.

Well it is not long before the young Jace is gambling in town and has put all his money in the pot. Now all Jace has is the property his father left him. In the poker pot he throws in the deed. Will Jace ever learn.

By the end of the episode, the story proves to be one of the better scripts in the lot. An entertaining show that was well written and well performed. One of the better shows in the entire collection.
