Episode Recap

Cowpoke Hank Slocum, is the last of the Wild West cowboys. He is a friend of Buffalo Bill, who makes his living riding in a Wild West show. Slocum likes to tell about his early exploits and relive his roaring life when he and Buffalo Bill Cody fought Indians on the Republican River and when Slocum was Sheriff of Bowie before Oklahoma gained statehood. But nobody cares that the West is no longer a frontier and Slocum is resigned to its relegation to history books until he comes to realize the West will never die in the keen imaginations of American youngsters everywhere.
