"Always direct and audacious, Cheyenne wasted no further time. He walked to the door and pushed it open. There was a shout from inside and a single shot."

After he recuperates, Cheyenne learns the young man is named Red Wing and is heir to the chiefdom of his tribe, but has been usurped and banished by his relatives. Cheyenne helps Red Wing regain his position, not by force but by using forces of nature to his advantage.
