Ordeals to come

Identity crisis

 

So far, so good.  Bodie had conned the brave into believing.  Persuading the Medicine-man that a White-man’s medicine could save the chief.  Joe had been bundled away  ..  now acting out his role as healer in the chief’s tepee.

Freeing Bodie to deal with the tribe ……

The brave

Identity crisis

 

He felt guilty.  His father was seriously ill, their chief.  Yet he’d been off chasing down these White-eyes  ..  putting up fences  ..  keeping them out of tribal lands.  And all along  ..  his father was dying  ……
He’d do anything to save him  ..  he’d put his trust in the ancient potions and spells.  But he’d also given in to his anger at these White-eyes  ..  what they were doing to their lands.

He was neglectful. Full of remorse. Someone had to pay …..

Strategy

Identity crisis

 

They didn’t lay claim to owning the land  ..  it was for all to use.  Since time immemorial their ancestors had roamed the land  ..  fending for themselves  ..  moving on in the footsteps to the buffalo.

But things had changed. Excluded. Driven off.  Banned.

Fears

Identity crisis

 

Joe’s head had been all over the place since the ambush.  Scared, caught off guard.  Finding out that the guy who’d been swinging the sledgehammer with him was half-Indian.  Brought up a savage like these brutes.
He wasn’t thinking straight.  Jittery.  Afraid for his life.

He had to get a grip ……..

Indian captives

Identity crisis

 

With their pants on, Joe felt some of his dignity restored.  Less vulnerable, less exposed to the scrutiny of these savages  ..  as good as naked themselves.
But their impatience quickly unsettled him.  It wasn’t that he was without his shirt  ..  he’d been shirtless all this stinking hot day  …..

….. it was that they couldn’t wait ……

Fences

Identity crisis

 

Facing a man with a gun trained on you ..  it made you hesitate.  A dozen rifles  ..  that stopped you in your tracks.
Surrounded by grim-faced Indians, armed with those rifles  ..  you weren’t going to try anything on.
Add to that  ..  you’re naked as the day you were born  ……..

Joe was scared ……..

River antics

Identity crisis

 

Indian tepees.  A barechested Bodie.  A muscular hunk for a companion.  All set?
For Cheyenne Bodie to ride again  …….

(Unfortunately stills of  the original Bodie are poor quality to use in illustrations.  Respectfully rendsz’ world has substituted others in that role.
Yes, I know   ….  My mother wants it highlighted.
There is NO subsitute for Clint Walker.)
