Summary:   Fifteen Joe Cartwright finds himself with a new friend, and is looking forward to spending time with him.

Little does he know that the friend has nothing about friendship in mind, and is full of jealousy, and sets up Joe at odds against his family, causing him to be blamed for something he didn’t commit.

Ben lays down a punishment as a result, which Joe can scarcely believe his father would introduce.  He is determined to show his family his displeasure and disappointment that they don’t believe him by taking some drastic measures to do so.

The friend confesses his wrong-doing and involvement in the whole affair, but not before he and Joe are both caught up against some desperate men, and he is the one who has to get back to Joe’s family for help before it is too late.
