The old sea captain was a hearty old salt, and Sgt Preston enjoyed his visits with the man and his parrot, Skipper. A report of an epidemic of the pox puts a damper on the friendly meeting. Superstitions run rampant among the indian tribes, and it’s just the thing Preston plans to use to convince the indians to burn the tainted furs.
Skipper the parrot is a novelty in the North, and the indians believe it has spiritual powers. Will the indians fall for the show that Preston has planned?
Will greed set in to ruin the plans? Will the delicate balance of speach and showmanship be crumbled? Tense moments are in store as we look in on the conference with the indians. Listen in to see if the epidemic can be put to an end.
