When Buddy (Buddy Roosevelt) halts a stagecoach robbery, he is given the job of riding the coach himself. He finds he has his work cut out ahead of him because the Crawford clan are trying to steal a mine from Bill Mason (William H. Turner), the father of Helen, who Buddy loves (Ann McKay). With the help of Horatio Jefferson Blaabs, a stranded actor (Nelson McDowell), Buddy manages to stop them. By hanging from a tree, Buddy is able to knock a couple of bad guys off their horses, and a third one falls off a cliff in the midst of a fist fight. The leader of the bad guys kills himself while trying to blow up the mine, and Buddy wins Helen. There was nothing new or original about this independently made Western, but who cared when Buddy Roosevelt offered such entertaining stunts?
