take the train back to Nebraska instead of accompanying the Longhorns north, leaving Teddy in the care of the sage trail boss, Vito Cross, whom Teddy wants to impress.Teddy is thrust into cowboy life with few skills and is forced to use his own ingenuity to learn the traits necessary for living on the trail.
