The brothers slog through the swamp fighting off alligators, snakes and the plot and come upon a widow and her son whom the Seminoles, who control the Everglades, have allowed to stay. She agrees to let them stay when Clay is bitten by a poisonous snake, and a romance develops between her and Dan, while the recovering Clay plots a few schemes of his own.
