for your furs in New Orleans.

Tell you what I'll do,

seeing as how it's you.

- I'll make you a special rate.

- That's nice of you.

Yes, you and your furs all the way

to Natchez or New Orleans,

for only $1,000 hard money.

Why, that's plain uncivilized piracy.

Ain't no question about it.

Make up your minds

and let me know before morning.

You keep me from my drinkin'.


Who does that big windbag

think he is?

Seems like he told us.

He might be the King of the River,

but he ain't got the only boat.

- Howdy there.

- Howdy.

This your boat?

Yep, Bertha Mae out of Marietta.

- Sounds like a racehorse.

- Hard to beat if she's handled right.

Which way you going?

Up river or down?

- Ain't going no place right now.

- Barrel's marked for New Orleans.

That's right.

But my crew up and deserted me.

- What'd they do that for?

- Heard about the Injuns.

Didn't know there was Injun trouble.

It ain't here.

Downriver somewhere.

Other side of Shawnee Town.

Red devils are attacking everything.

Flat boats loaded with settlers.

Even on the keelboats.

Got so bad, nobody'd sign on.

Don't seem to be scaring off

Mike Fink none.

Him and them Pittsburgh pole-pushers

ain't human enough to be scared.

We picked the wrong time

for a boat ride.


- Are you really Davy Crockett?

- Why, sure.

- I'm Captain Cobb.

- This is my friend, Georgie Russel.

Glad to know ya. You fellas

got a reputation for Injun fightin'.

If folks knew you were going downriver

with me, we could get a crew.

- What do you think, Georgie?

- Beats paying $1,000 we ain't got.

- How many men would it take?

- Six, if they're as strong as you be.

If they don't know any more

about boating than Georgie and me,

it'll be some crew.

Better split up,

we're gonna cover the town.
