Reece Canby, owner of the Diamond RC, spent years as a youngster on the nearby Mescalero Apache reservation. By treaty, Chief Antone's tribe has ownership of the Sentinel Basin. But Sax Starke and Chelso DeLacca of the Teepee spread want this graze. Their plan is to stir up trouble with the Mescaleros so that the government will intervene. Now two Mescaleros that Reece has known since childhood stand accused of rustling by two witnesses -- both employed by Teepee.
