Synopsis

Nevada, a feared gunfighter, springs his pal, Cash Burridge, from the jail in Lineville. Reaching Winthrop, they decide to take respectable jobs on the ranch of Ben Ide, an Englishman whom they rescue from Cawthorne's men. Ide, who fears the activity of cattle rustlers, dispatches Nevada to protect his daughter, Hettie, arousing the enmity of Clan Dillon, the ranch foreman and a suitor for Hettie's hand. To escape the law, Nevada and Cash join up with Cawthorne, who is under orders from Dillon, leader of the rustlers. During a raid, Dillon shoots both Cash and Cawthorne, but Nevada learns of his treachery from his dying pal; in a confrontation, Nevada is wounded by Dillon but is saved by the arrival of the posse and the evidence given by the wounded Cawthorne against the leader.
