SYNOPSIS

Reb sees Brady being cruel to Little Feather, an Indian who occasionally works for Callahan. Callahan later tells Reb that Little Feather is rarely let off the Indian Reservation and that De Kalb, the corrupt official in charge of the Reservation, is cheating the Indians by charging them exorbitant prices for food. Reb goes to the reservation to investigate and, posing as a rustler, gets De Kalb to reveal that he is buying cattle stolen by Sheriff Turner and his gang. Reb arrests DeKalb and takes him back to Callahan's ranch in order to sign a statement implicating the members of the rustling operation and clearing Tommy of any involvement.

Reb soon realizes that Slade did not send the message, but the surly Slade nevertheless initiates a gun battle and Reb kills him. In the meantime, Sue is kidnapped by Turner and Monroe, and Reb, Callahan and Little Feather go to the rescue. Reb succeeds in capturing Turner and Monroe and they are turned over to federal authorities.
