Storyline

The Central and Western Railroad, building a new line in the Midwest, faces Indian problems - $500,000 of them. That sum is how much the Cheyenne and their leader, American Knife, demand to permit the construction and stop killing the construction team. Digging into the matter, Jim becomes convinced that all may not be as it appears... Written by CommanderBalok
