Kate Macahan : Who was Billie Joe?
Zeb Macahan : Oh, he was an indian boy, Kate. He was a reservation runaway. First time I ever met him, he was trying to steal my horse. He was about... fifteen I guess, then, and dirty and scrawny. We washed him all down, we found a pure Cheyene indian underneath. Being Cheyenne, he was... worth the trouble salvaging. I thaught him what I know. I guess he was kinda like a son to me.
