An older former gunman, that has warrants still out for his arrest, is attacked by a bear. The injures are serious and the gunman, Bodie Tatum, only is given about a week to live by Doc Adams.
We now learn that Bodie, who is now living with an Indian woman and they have a child together, had abandoned his family years ago. Leaving his three daughters with his wife. His wife had dies but he sent for his three daughter to come and visit him. We learn that he has three different type daughter, one was a hard working and looking woman, one was a young social type person and the other was a saloon girl.
His dying wishes is to make amends with his daughter and to be buried by his wife in Spearville. After some uncomfortable moments, the daughters decide to honor their father wish and take him to Spearville to be buried. But this would prove difficult as most of Spearville remember the gunman and what no part of him returning to their town. The Sheriff of Spearville will do all he can to stop the wagon that is occupied by Bodie Tatum. So with warrant still on Bodie, Marshal Dillon will make the trip with Bodie and the daughters.
Gene Evans does a nice job of playing the dying man that finally comes to grip with his daughters. The writers did a nice job of having each daughter come from different backgrounds which lead to more interest in the story. However there was little action during most of the show and a lot of routine dialog. An average show with average results.
