  • Man with incredible eyebrows (wagon train master) abandons a woman and child in the wilderness on the pretext that the child has typhoid. Paladin find a doctor (shocking! a woman!) and goes up against a town and wagon master to help the child.moreless

    Hard to sympathize with Paladin when he wants to take a potentially dangerous illness into a wildnerness community. Apparently the doctor could not give the simple supportive care to the mother (exhaustion) and child anywhere except in her own house, in the center of town.



    The town of frightened people, with children of their own, are represented as cowards and sheep of the wagon master. The wagon master is a fiend in human shape with a personal agenda that has nothing to do with a sick child.



    The townspeople calm down when it becomes clear the child does not have typhoid, but there is no proclaimation of their justification in attempting to protect themselves from what appeared to be a terrible communicable sickness.



    Paladin is not at his best when claiming the high moral ground in this one.moreless
