In this adaptation of Zane Grey's novel, adventurer Dick Gale (E.K. Lincoln) is traveling through the Southwest. He helps rescue Mercedes Castanada (Margery Wilson) from the clutches of notorious outlaw Rojas (Walter Long). Mercedes' fiancé, Captain George Thorne (Edward Coxen), entrusts her to Gale's care when he returns to duty. They stay at the home of rancher Jim Belding (William Bainbridge), and Gale falls in love with his foster daughter, Nell Burton (Eileen Percy). But Rojas still wants Mercedes, and he heads for the Belding ranch. Gale hides her, and with the help of several others, including a Yaqui Indian (W. Lawson Butt), he wipes out the bandits. The Indian throws Rojas over a cliff. Mercedes is saved, the West is made a slightly safer place to be, and Gale marries Nell.
