Synopsis for "The Man Who Couldn't Talk"Edit

The Rawhide Kid and Randy Clayton are in Shotgun City when they spot a man tied to a horse near the brink of death with a note pinned to his back. The note reads "This hombre got too nosey and too close" which does not tell them much. The Kid turns over the wounded man to the doctor and leaves his horse in the care of Hammer, the local blacksmith. Sheriff Yarby gets involved in the situation and the learn that the man is going to survive but it is unknown if he will be able to talk any time soon. They search his clothes but find no identification. The Kid decides to check the horse for any clues. The only thing he learns is when Hammer tells him that the horse has clay caked in it's shoe that is only found in one place: Bluerock Flats.

The Rawhide Kid gets an idea to try and flush out the men responsible for hurting the man, and has the local paper publish a story about how the man survived and is going to talk to the Sheriff about who attacked him. The outlaws responsible get a copy of the newspaper, and decide to finish the job against the US Marshal that they roughed up.

The following morning, Randy warns the Rawhide Kid when he sees some strangers entering town. The Kid is waiting for them when they try to enter the doctor's house to eliminate the Marshall and they are taken into custody. However when the refuse to talk, the Rawhide Kid comes up with a better idea: letting their horses go.

When the cattle get near to town, the Kid and the other locals light the fabric on fire, spooking the cattle away from town. Rounding up the herd they find brands belonging to the Triangle X ranch that is located out in San Pedro. Wondering how the cattle managed to get this far, they send a telegraph out and soon learn that the cattle were stolen from the ranch a month prior.

Meanwhile, not far away, the Fluke gang lament over the failure of their plan to trample the city with cattle so they can steal forty thousand dollars that is in the local bank that the government intends to use to buy land off the local Native Americans. So they decide to try again and begin trying to round up the cattle, but they run afoul of the Rawhide Kid and Randy who easily disarm them.
