Storyline

The coming of the railroads vastly altered the cattle business, soon rendering cross-country trail drives unnecessary. Three cowboys, led by Will Parmalee, find the new West inhospitable to itinerant cattle drovers. Trouble seeks them out, and Matt Dillon finds himself on the opposite side of the law from his longtime friend Will. Written by richardann

A strong story line, and well written
22 June 2018 | by martinxperry-14868See all my reviews

This is an episode that speaks of a time when change bites some cowboys on their last drive. The guest cast members play strong, often moving roles. It is an often written about subject but here on Gunsmoke it shows so very well.
