Now, wait a minute. Let's not be in a hurry. There's one...
Now, wait a minute. Let's not be in a hurry. There's one more thing. Torrey was a pretty brave man, and I figure we'd be doin' wrong if we wasn't the same.
Joe, last time you argued us into stayin', Torrey was alive.
What do you want us to stay for? More of this?
Because we can have a regular settlement here, we can have a town and churches and a school and...
I-I don't know, we just got to, that's all.
Know what you want to stay for? Something that means more to you than anything else - your families - your wives and kids. Like you, Lewis, your girls. Shipstead with his boys. They've got a right to stay here and grow up and be happy. That's up to you people to have - nerve enough to not give it up.
That's right. That's - we can't give up this valley and we ain't gonna do it. This is farmin' country, a place where people can come and bring up their families. Who is Ruf Ryker or anyone else to run us away from our own homes? He only wants to grow his beef and what we want to grow up is families, to grow 'em good and grow 'em, grow 'em up strong, the way they was meant to be grown. God didn't make all this country just for one man like Ryker.
Oh, wait a minute, let's not be in a hurry. There's one more thing.
Torrey was a pretty brave man.
We'd be doing wrong if we wasn't the same.
Last time you argued that, Torrey was alive.
- You want us to stay for more of this? - We can have a regular settlement.
We can have a town, and churches and a school.
You've just got to, that's all.
He wants you to stay for something that means more than anything.
Your wives and kids.
Like you, Lewis, your girls...
...and Shipstead with his boys.
They've got a right to stay here and grow up and be happy.
It's up to you people to have nerve enough to not give it up.
That's right. We can't give up this valley and we ain't gonna do it.
This is farming country, a place for people to bring up their families.
Who's Ryker to run us away from our own homes?
He only wants to grow beef, and we want to grow families...
...to grow them good and strong, the way they were meant to be grown.
God didn't make all this country just for one man like Ryker.
He's got it though, and that's what counts.
- Look, look there. - A fire.
It's Lewis's place.
It's our place.
- Ryker lit it. - He had no right.
He wouldn't have, if you hadn't left it.
I built it with my own hands.
- Not the girls' room. - I was getting round to it.
If we stick together, we can put that place back up.
- Can't we? JOHNSON: Right.
We'll help you build the room, Johnson and Joe.
- Shane'll help. - Yeah.
We'll get the timber and put it right back up, right?
- Yes, sir. We'll do it. - Me too, I'll help.
- You'll do that for us? - All that, just for us?
Not just for you, Martha, for all of us in this valley.
Come and help. Maybe we can save part of that.
That's the spirit. Let's get to the Lewises' place.
Come on, men.
Hey, come on.
Boss. Looks like Lewis is going back.
Starrett's holding them together.
- He could set fire to mine. - Stay on your ground.
He'll do us like he did Torrey.
- There's a law against killing. - The law is three days' ride from here.
- You know that. - What does that leave us with?
- Give me time. - Who's gonna fight Ryker?
