Brief Synopsis:
The Virginian's old friend Seth James (Anderson), a sheriff with a colorful
past, urges the foreman to join him on a hunting expedition into the Teton
Mountains.  While deep in the wilderness the Virginian learns Seth is on an
obsessive search for the last two living members of a gang whose use of
dynamite in a bank robbery caused the death of eight people and has reason
to want one of them in particular.
