  • When little Peggy O'Toole splatters mud on Albert Farnsworth's prized leather boots, she ignites a feud between the proud British colonel and Peggy's grandfather, the hot-headed Irishman Mike O'Toole. Jeremy Oakes, the colonel's orderly, tries to diffuse the situation, but with the colonel's proud, arrogant personality it's not long before Farnsworth has insulted others and tried the patience of Major Adams. The major orders Farnsworth to keep to himself and tasks Tim O'Toole with keeping Peggy and his father away from the colonel. But the wagon train's close quarters lead to continued confrontations involving more and more people, which threaten to spill out of control. In the meantime Cheyenne Indians approach the wagon train. The Cheyenne demand supplies in exchange for safe passage. Major Adams decides to accept the offer. Before he can close the deal Colonel Farnsworth interrupts the meeting. The colonel's rude remarks insult the Cheyenne, who declare they will take the supplies by force. In the ensuing raid Peggy O'Toole is taken hostage by the Cheyenne. Colonel Farnsworth insists on going after her despite the very real possibility the Cheyenne will kill him.

  • Arrogant British Colonel Albert Farnsworth causes an uproar in camp and puts the wagon train in danger of Indian attack, resulting in the capture of a young girl by the Cheyenne and the mortal wounding of his long time aide.
