Storyline

Unlike most townspeople, doc takes a dim view of peddler-healer Elias 'Eli' Jackson, who sells his 'universal medicine' in a show starring fake Kikapoo Indian Franklin, who performs stunts permanently drunk to provide for his son. Sully finds out they're runaway Cheyenne and arranges with Cloud Dancing to reconcile them to the tribe. Doc finds out Eli really is a qualified surgeon and demands his help to perform an ovary tumor removal, but he's traumatized since the Civil War. Written by KGF Vissers
