Storyline

Betsy runs into David Henderson who is on foot and trying to catch a fish by hand during his wandering trip to the west. She offers a meal for work at the ranch but he spurns her offer. Later, Trampas brings him in and Betsy becomes intrigued while feeding him. An unsafe mine with labor problems has Ryker asking for Judge Garth's help and draws David's interest due to a cave-in. The leader of the miners is trapped and killed in the cave-in although David helps rescue him and reveals he is a minister. David worked in a mining community back east and the leaderless miners ask him to lead their fight. Ryker is forced by the mine manager Calder to evict the striking miners while he brings in replacement workers. David becomes involved in resolving the mine issues while allowing more contact between him and Betsy who is looking for something special in her life as well. They fall in love but he is reluctant due to a previous wife's death and other issues. They decide to marry and move back... Written by Anonymous
