Vowing vengeance, she immediately puts a $1,000 bounty on Callahan's head. She entices Duffy (Lee J. Cobb) to help her seek out Callahan, who wears the yellow boots that Callahan remembers him by.

Alexandra spots Callahan at the casino, and befriends a young cowboy (Bo Hopkins). She convinces him that her honor has been insulted.

After nearly being killed by a mother bear protecting her cub, she is saved by Callahan, who shoots the adult bear. He saves the cub because it won't survive on its own. She falls in love with Callahan.
