Luke and Sam meet on the trail and form a partnership in a venture to supply beef to the miners in the Colorado Gold Fields. They are then discovered by Silas who recognizes them as just the type of men that he wants to settle and mold the future of his sacred mountains. Together they establish the SWD brand on the Escondido near the headwaters of the Arkansas River.
