Also a part of the wagon company is the Baker family, Lon, his wife Norma, and their eight-year-old daughter, Precious.
On the journey west, they rescue two travelers from other trains: Nonnie Hughes, a widow who had been going west with her brother and nephew when their wagon train was attacked by a gang of white outlaws, known as the “Hood Raiders”, and beautiful, young, Darci Clinton, who had been captured by Indians after her family was slain.
Tension develops with some of the members of the train, but Cody keeps everything in check as the train endures the rigors of travel. When the train is hit by the Hood Raiders, the Raiders, including their leader are killed, and the others run off.
