He had no desire to travel to Europe with his peers. On his way from Fort Worth to the community of Clear Fork, he encounters a band of bushwhackers, and is severely beaten, robbed, and left for dead.

Later, the Mexican corners him on a rock slab protruding out over a valley, and Sam has to fight for his life.Sam’s Eastern education was nothing compared to the one he earned as a cowboy.
