When an indian boy is found at the outskirts of Dodge City, Doc, Matt, and Chester have their conversation about the slow and lazy events of the day interupted. Why can't the boy talk, and tell them why he's there?
Matt learns from a rancher about the trouble that he's having where some of his cattle are being slaughtered near indian territory. Are the local indians so desperate that they need to hunt the cattle? A scout for the army, who is part Kiowa, fills matt in on the conditions of the tribe. Are the indians being set up?
Hard, frontier justice awaits when the guilty party is identified.
