As Josh mounts his horse to leave town Billy Clegg pulls a gun and tells Josh to dismount hands free. Josh does so but is able to jump and knock out Clegg. In Clegg's hat he finds a wanted poster wanting Josh dead or alive for $1000 by Sam McGarrett. Josh rides to McGarrett's home at Dos Mesas, New Mexico where he finds Sam wants him for his expertise to lead his family to a lost gold treasure in a desert Josh knows. The treasure was on a ship that became locked inland after a seismic event. Josh turns down the offer but when Sam raises the pay to $5000 Josh signs on. Sam wants to take his daughter Beth and son Clay with them although Josh advises against taking Beth. Meanwhile, Clegg and his bounty hunter partner Vince Slater head for Dos Mesas as well to track down Josh. It becomes obvious Beth won't last so they drop her off with Josh's friend George Belden. Clegg and Slater track Josh to Belden's place who unknowingly sends them after Josh and the McGarretts.
