STRANGER RIDING BY
Lou and her 7-year-old son, Willie, are alone on their ranch near Malta, MT, when a well-dressed stranger stops. Hospitality being an unwritten law in their part of the country, Lou offers the man breakfast. Although the man is polite and pleasant, both mother and son feel that something is not right, but all proceeds normally until Willie notices that under his suit coat he wears a shoulder holster with a gun in it.
Based on an actual event that occurred in 1901 on the Milk River.
