    I cant say much more than Roger has, a great episode showing a man at a crossroads, a man tempted to act out a what if scenario of his final days. Great story as usual for Rawhide.
  • This episode features Wishbone and is a good study of a man at a crossroads in life.

    Wish (again) is getting tired of the cooking jokes and feeling the urge to "put down roots", not to mention suffering back and shoulder injuries. On the trail, he happens into a town and manages to anger the richest man in town, but makes fast friends with the miners who have been cheated, and a lonely widow. Wish takes to the nurturing given by the widow and the neighbors who readily accept him. But alas, his love and his lady, is the drive...moreless

    • Wishbone: The way I heard it, it some French fella named Napoleon said an army marches on its belly. Well, I don't know much about armies, but I mighty well know that's true about trail drives. The beeves eat what they can, but the drovers are a little more particular. So one day I'll cook 'em pig vests with buttons - that's salt pork and beans. Next day they'll get Kansas City fish - that's salt pork with brown berries, and that's beans. The day after they're liable to get sow belly. That's salt beans. This time with prairie strawberries. And that's beans. So the fourth day I stay out of sight. My name's Wishbone, feeder of the Gil Favor outfit.
