Cast & Crew
Rancher Fred Mitchell sends for Jack Lambert to help him during a range war, which is caused by Flint, a man trying to buy all of the local land. The local ranchers all believe that Flint is responsible for their recent cattle losses. When Jack arrives, he discovers that Flint and his rival, Wallace, are both waiting for Connie Mitchell, Fred's sister, who has been living in the East and plans to sell the ranch. Flint, who has made several offers to Fred, hopes that he can coerce Connie into selling to him, but Fred hopes to convince her otherwise. To prevent Flint from talking with Connie, Jack "kidnaps" Connie and takes her out of town to wait for Fred. Flint discovers the ruse and, hoping to turn the situation to his own advantage, has two of his men, Cliff and Ed, kill Fred when he approaches the cabin where Jack has taken Connie. The blame for Fred's murder is then placed on Jack, and even Connie believes that he is responsible. After Jack is arrested, he escapes and finds Ed, who has been wounded, dying. Ed reveals the truth to Jack and informs him that Wallace is secretly working for Flint, rather than being his rival. When Jack goes to the ranchers to tell them what has been happening, he discovers that Connie has already decided to sell to Wallace. Jack and the others arrive at the ranch before Connie signs the papers, though, and Wallace, Flint, and the gang members are arrested.
