Little Joe; Strong Bull; Sir Wilfred Bledsoe; Bart
The lieutenant governor of Massachusetts asks the Cartwrights to host an Englishman on a hunting trip. When the Shoshone see that Sir Wilfred is wantonly killing buffalo, they want to attack. Little Joe tries to mediate, but winds up having to defeat Sir Wilfred in a boxing match. The Shoshone capture both, and send Little Joe to negotiate for the hunting party to leave their territory, but the hunters hogtie Little Joe. Making his escape he frees Sir Wilfred and convinces him to leave the territory, satisfying the Shoshone.

Mrs. Reese stumbles into the Ponderosa in a snowstorm, saying that her husband lies injured in the blizzard. As the Cartwrights help her search she fires off a gun in hopes that her husband will hear, triggering a landslide that blocks the train. She returns to the Ponderosa while the Cartwrights continue searching, eventually learning that all of this has been a dodge to cover the escape of train robbers. They are unsuccessful in capturing the gang, but Hoss recovers the stolen loot.
