Synopsis
Crooks try to delay a wagon train headed to Oregon by diverting the wagon train's Sioux guards with fake news of a war with another tribe. The outlaws then kidnap the Chief's son in order to provoke the Sioux into attacking the wagon train.

Indexer Notes

The song "Wringle Wrangle" plays an important part in the plot. Indicia reads "Based on the Walt Disney motion picture "Westward Ho, the Wagons!" which was adapted from the novel "Children of the Covered Wagon," by Mary Jane Carr." The comic story is more like a sequel than an adaptation, as it picks up the action late in the movie.
