Eastern lawyer Woods heads west to check on his mine holdings and finds that the mine manager, Gordon, has been cheating him over the years. Gordon has one of his henchmen try to kill Woods, but the stooge only wounds him and Barrat comes to the lawyer's aid. Woods falls in love with
Barrat's daughter, Venable, and then goes on the trail of Gordon. Thanks to the help of area ranchers, Gordon is brought to justice. This was the third and strongest in Paramount's Zane Grey series, with the action building to an explosive ending.
