Synopsis

In Kansas of the 1880's, in order to buy a ranch and settle down with his fiancée, Anna, Santee sets out to become a bounty hunter. He returns 8 months later to find that Anna has married Ralph Elkins, Sheriff of Lark. Santee approaches landowner Gus Kile with a plan for discrediting the town of Lark so that the new railroad will be routed instead through Kile's town and thus increase property values. Sheriff Nemo of the town of Kile persuades the landowner that he can carry out the scheme more efficiently, but when Nemo tries to kill Santee, he is gunned down. Santee then forces Pete, Lark's saloon keeper, to finance the importation of bouncer Henderson, gambler Swifty, and a group of dancehall girls in the employ of Sadie, a madam from New Orleans. Santee, however, repudiates Henderson and his vicious gang after they tar and feather Sheriff Elkins and injure Tanner, the local preacher. Vowing to clean up the town he himself has brought to ruin, Santee destroys the gunslingers and leaves with the good wishes of Anna and her husband.
