The Lone Ranger rides to the Big Horn trail, where there’s going to be trouble. The Lone
Ranger and Tonto come across a large band of Lizard Warriors. Painted for war, they are a band made up of many tribes, and have bad intentions.
As Tonto intends to deal with the indians, Lone Ranger rides off as fast as he can to warn the local Army post, where the commander is General Custer. Interesting, since after the Civil War, Custer was reduced in rank to Colonel. Nothing bad, its just common practice to remove brevet, or combat rank after the war is over.
Back to the story, Custer is a virtual prisoner in his fort, and his hands are tied. Still, he can help the Lone Ranger in some way, can’t he? Next, Lone Ranger rides the trail to warn the homesteaders.
Tension runs high as the Lizard warriors do their war dance, driven to a frenzy by their white, renegade leaders. It’s a bad mix of outcast indians, and Ruthless outlaws. Things get worse when Tonto is captured. Will he be tortured? Can he escape? Will the Lizard Warriors be successful?
What about the settlers, and the fort? Probably more than any words from the Lone Ranger, the women folk help rally their men to stand and fight for their settlements. Gotta love those pioneer women, when it comes to life and death struggles, you have to stop seeing them as a liability, and see them as an asset, and fighting partner. No damsels in distress here.
Meanwhile, although Custer can’t use his troops, he sneaks away, and manages to free Tonto before meeting up with the band of settlers. It’ll be a wild fight of epic proportions. Sit tight, and don’t fall off the edge of your seat as the battle rages.
People and resources are pushed to their limits. Gunshots, shouting, battle cries, and what is that wafting to my ears? the sound of an Army bugle? Could this be the end? whew! What a fight.
