Synopsis

Ed Wetherford becomes an outlaw and, to escape imprisonment, abandons his wife Eliza and daughter Virginia. After attending college in the East, Virginia returns to California, where she meets and falls in love with Ross Cavanaugh, a United States ranger. Ross is busy trying to maintain peace between warring cattlemen and sheepherders and, in the line of duty, meets Virginia's father. The two men become friends and Virginia, who had been reluctant to accept Ross's proposal because of her father's misdeeds, finally marries Ross.
