Cameron plays the leader of a wagon train headed for California. Though warned that the Cheyennes have been sold rifles by mysterious gunrunners and are on the warpath, Cameron guides his settlers through the rough spots and fends off several Indian attacks. Eventually he discovers that
three of the settlers, Ferguson, Brandon, and Hill, are the gunrunners and wastes no time taking appropriate action. As in other films like this one, homesteaders provide ample opportunities for domestic subplots and comedy relief.
