Falsely accused of claim jumping and wounded by the haughty Betty Mclean (Toy Gallagher), ranger Bud Lowrie (Buddy Roosevelt) tracks down the real culprit (Joe Rickson) and his equally unsavory sister (Ruth Royce). In a climax that gives credence to the film's title, Lowrie not only apprehends the villainous duo but also rescues the now-repentant Betty from a burning cabin. Roosevelt was one of producer Lester F. Scott's discoveries and enjoyed a fair reputation as a second-tier cowboy star in the late silent era, a stature he failed to carry over into talkies. Rather more interesting is female villain Ruth Royce, an exotic actress from Missouri who made a career of playing nasty prairie vamps.
