While transporting an unruly bull from Silver Springs to Shiloh
Trampas, Stacey and Elizabeth are caught in a wind storm. Seeking shelter
in a deserted cabin, they soon have the company of Silver Springs banker
Marcus Van Owen (Rainey) and his wife Angela (Crowley)--a woman whom
Trampas recognizes as Pearl, a card shark who had once cheated him in a
poker game. Angela insists she has reformed and begs the cowboy not to
tell her husband about her past. By "coincidence" the bank's teller
appears at the cabin to inform Van Owen that the bank had been robbed.
Trampas and Stacey find a stash of gold coins behind some boards in the shed
after the bull butts a hole in the wall and, believing that Van Owen or his
teller might have robbed their own bank, decide to wait and see who would
come for the money. Sometime later the bull escapes and is caught by Cal
Dorsey (Martin), a drifter who had often used the cabin and now joins the
group to wait out the storm. By the time the wind subsides the robber has
revealed himself and Trampas has gained respect for the "real lady" Angela
has become. (bj)
