After 15 years of searching, Bud Watkins finally has his revenge on the cattlemen's gunman who killed his homesteader foster father, Pop Watkins.

In an attempt to escape, Miss is shot and Bud risks discovery to get a doctor from town. Miss recovers and is kidnaped by Steve when she and Bud again attempt to leave, but Bud rescues her after a thrilling ride.
