Brief Synopsis:
This episode introduces Randy Boone to the cast as Randy Benton,
a lonely drifter who shares a meal with a man and his daughter then
reluctantly comes to the aid of the little girl after her father is
murdered. Betsy befriends Randy and becomes torn between revealing the
whereabouts of his hiding place and being true to her desire to believe in
and protect him when accusations arise that it was he who killed the man
while stealing his gold. (bj)
