(Season 2, Episode 5; Airdate: 10/14/71)
Relentlessly pursued by a posse, the outlaws ditch their horses and hitch a ride with a woman returning with supplies to her ranch. Invited to stay, they become attached and comfortable with the woman and her family, including two young tomboy daughters, Bridget and Beth (played by real-life sisters Lisa and Cindy Eilbacher). When the posse catches up with them, however, they are forced to reveal their true identities to the family and face the consequences of not only the law, but their friends’ disappointment in them. Pete sings a sweet rendition of “Simple Gifts” in this episode. Vera Miles guest-stars.
