The Cady brothers have vowed revenge against the Arapaho woman, Winona, who was acquitted of murdering their brother with Slim on the jury. The two younger brothers Wayne and Lon try to kill her by knocking her out and setting her hut on fire. Sherman Ranch gets caught in the middle when Slim Sherman rescues Winona from certain death in the fire. In return Winona becomes the property of the young rancher, much to his chagrin based on Arapaho law which say a life saved belongs to the one who saved it. Slim tries at first to ignore the custom but when she follows him home, he takes in much to the delight of a tickled Jess. Slim is attracted to the pretty Arapaho, but her heart belongs to another even though she is paying a debt of honor demanded by her tribe. With the Cady's wanting her dead, her presence at the ranch puts Slim and Jess Harper in danger, because the Cady's are out for blood and they don't care who gets in their way. Written by DarSpi

Lovely present
15 February 2017 | by See all my reviews

John Smith for saving Lisa Gaye's life twice, first for being the foreman of a jury that acquits her of murder and secondly from a burning tepee her Arapahoe father Michael Pate makes a present of her to Smith.

But Gaye was the victim of an attempted murder in that second hand by two of the brothers of the man she killed. Seemed as though the deceased was trying to rape her and the brothers, Russell Johnson and Tony Warren believes that's what Indian squaws are for if they're handy. The older and smarter brother John Anderson believes in waiting for an opportune moment.

In the end the situation is resolved without some dangerous and embarrassing moments for the Sherman ranch. There's a great scene with Spring Byington and Michael Pate as Spring tries to diplomatically resolve the Gaye situation and Pate shows she has no career as a diplomat.

Funny and serious is this Laramie story.
