Writers Earll and Sapinsley present a sympathetic understanding
of Indian affairs in their story of a half Kiowa who has escaped from the
reservation with a desire to be free in his expression of the old Indian
ways. Charged not only with escape but with murder, John (Robinson) hides
himself among the Shiloh hands who are taking a herd of cattle to Fort
Dawkins. Jim Horn befriends him--even to the point of going to jail as an
accomplice to a second escape when the greedy sutler (Jones) who turned
John in for the reward is killed. Faced with the prospect of going back to
town to prevent Jim's hanging or running on to Canada, John finally takes
to heart Kgoy-Ma's (Hyland) statement that a true warrior never abandons a
man that has fought for him and rides into town to do battle for his white
"brother." At the end we are left to ponder Webb's (Aidman) statement,
"Will the day ever come, my friends, when it will no longer be necessary
for a man to be dead to find peace." (bj)
