Episode Summary

EDIT
The Ruth Marshall Story
AIRED:
As the wagon train moves through Sioux territory, a man named Marshall asks for help in finding his daughter, Ruth, who apparently was taken by Indians following a raid eleven years ago. The girl would now be 19 years old. Flint McCullough goes in search of the girl, is injured in an ambush by a lone Indian, and is treated by a blue-eyed white woman living with four wolves. The woman communicates only through sign-language and is held in reverence by the local Sioux. Meanwhile the Indian who ambushed Flint and was wounded in the process reports back to his father, Red Cloud. Red Cloud learns that the "Woman Who Lives with Wolves" is treating a white man and orders Flint to be brought to his camp for possible punishment. The Wolf Woman intervenes and has Flint returned to the wagon train along with a book which bears the name "Ruth Marshall" on its flyleaf.moreless

      • This episode is the second in which, through Flint, we see Tribal Law in action. In Episode #18 he's staked out spreadeagle style and left to bake under the scorching sun. In Episode #163 he's tied to the side of the wagon and horsewhipped. In this episode he's hanged by his wrists from a horizontal pole in an Indian village so that his feet dangle about 8 inches off the ground, thus taking his whole weight on his arms and shoulder muscles. The pain increases in intensity the longer the ordeal goes on with an increasing risk of permanent damage to the upper torso.
