The Cartwrights must try to get help for Adam, seriously wounded by an Apache bullet, and find out why Cochise and his warriors have threatened to kill them all if they don't hand over an army captain taking refuge in their trail camp.
While the Cartwrights are making camp for the night, a Calvary captain suddenly appears being chased by Indians. The captain rushes into the camp and the Cartwrights realize that they are surrounded and have no water. They learn from the captain that the leader of the Indians is Cochise.
After Adam is injured in an attempt to get water, Ben decides that he must barter with Cochise to save his son's life.
