Synopsis for "Christmas in an Outlaw Town"

Near Christmas, Jonah is riding through the snow, remembering his childhood, when Pappy Hex would get drunk and beat him. He's more pre-occupied with tracking down his latest bounty, the Boley Boys, a notorious gang of murderous thieves. The boys target Clarence Dooley, a wealthy, portly philanthropist preparing to play Santa Claus at the mission orphanage. The gang shoots and kills Dooley, and Jonah promises a nun that he'll catch the killers.

Jonah's travels take him to Willow Creek, which has become "Outlaw Town," a haven for criminals run by Jonah's own pappy, Woodson, who acts as sheriff, judge, mayor, clerk, and city council. Woodson is also partners with the Boleys, and plots to rob a train of its gold shipment. Jonah escapes from the elder Hex's jail and shoots down the Boleys. He has a different revenge saved for his white-bearded Papy, however, taking him back to town to act as Santa for the orphans.
