Synopsis for "War Drums On The Red River!"

Stalking Panther of the Croyo tribe sneaks into the Apache village and reports back to his father, chief Yellow Feather that their enemies are sleeping and suggest that they attack while their guards are down in retaliation for siding with the white soldiers at Fort Madison and so that he can take White Swan for his bride. Stalking Panther is furious that White Swan promised her love to Apache Kid, and so Yellow Feather instructs his son to deal with the Apache warrior himself. At that moment, unaware of the danger, the restless Apache Kid finds himself unable to sleep and decides to take a night ride on his horse Nightwind. He is ambushed by an attack party of Croyos led by Yellow Feather and Stalking Panther. Apache Kid is furious to learn that the Croyos are plotting to wipe out the soldiers at the fort and his people while Stalking Panther seeks to take White Swan as his bride. However, the brave warrior is easily subdued and tied to a stake while the Croyos prepare for war.

The Croyo war drums awaken the soldiers are Fort Madison and Captain Bill Gregory orders his troops to prepare for battle. At the same time the Apaches are also awoken and learn that Apache Kid is missing and prepare for battle as well. As the Apaches head to Fort Madison to assist in the battle, the Croyos swoop down from a ridge seeking to wipe them out as they approach the Fort. White Swan, fearing for Apache Kid's safety, finds him tied to the stake under the guard of Stalking Panther. While White Swan distracts Stalking Panther, she tosses a knife that cuts through Apache Kid's bonds. Apache Kid easily defeats Stalking Panther and then fires a red arrow into the Fort, signaling Captain Gregory to order his troops to assist the Apaches.

While White Swan is distracted, Apache Kid changes into his alter-ego Aloysius Kare. When White Swan finds Kare in the place Apache Kid, she is less than impressed to see the roving cowboy. Kare then takes Stalking Panther into the thick of the battle and shows Yellow Feather that his son is a prisoner. Yellow Feather orders his men to stand down. He then agrees to a challenge between Kare and Stalking Panther: If Stalking Panther loses the Coyoes will agree to leave the area. However, before the battle can start, Stalking Panther passes out from his previous thrashing from the Apache Kid, forfeiting the battle and forcing the Croyos to leave. With the battle over, both Gregory and Red Hawk thank Aloysius for his help.
