All-Star Western 73

To the children John Tane teaches, Johnny Thunder is a hero, to be looked up to and imitated. One of his students, a young Cheyenne named Swift Deer, goes on a personal quest to become recognized as a great man like Thunder. He dresses for the part, taking his father’s war bonnet with him as he heads into the plains. John, who had been looking for his wayward pupil, saved his life- though Swift Deer was unaware. Still he was able to pay back the favor, when Johnny was ambushed by a gang of outlaws he had been hunting. The boy quickly made arrows, using the war bonnet, and was able to give Johnny time to shoot back.
