Boones Crossing, Kansas
July 23, 1889
Little Eli, Kit, Ruby, and Isaac arrive in Boones Crossing
before noon. He wants to surprise his grandpa and Marshal
Hopkins, since they don't know he's coming to visit.
Kit and Ruby concoct a plan to walk in Connors Store and
tell Sam Connor that they're supposed to meet some
friends in his store this morning.
Later, Sam Connor gets a chance to pull the same prank
on his grandson and the others when two strangers come
looking for Eli, Kit, Ruby, and Isaac.
Our story shifts to Abilene, Texas. Some folks in that Texas
town seem to take offense with Ezra, Caleb, Micah, and Pike.
Just for them being there.
Get ready, folks. It ain't gonna be pretty!
