In this western, a ranch foreman and the bosses son go to a saloon to slake their thirst and find themselves in the midst of a battle started by the feisty saloon owner's wicked ex-husband who loots the safe in the ensuing scuffle. The woman is then ruined and when she is offered passage on a wagon train, she accepts the offer. The rancher's wounded son also becomes a passenger who is protected by the brave hero. The ex-husband also joins the travelers as no one knows that he started the trouble. He brings with him a wagon load of illegal arms to sell to renegade Indians. He soon insights trouble by killing a wagon master and a friendly Indian. He then finds himself killed by the protective ranch foreman during a shoot out. The hero must the make peace with the angry Indian chief whose son was killed. Unfortunately, the chief takes him captive. Fortunately he is rescued by the rancher's son. They then go back to save the by now beleagured wagon train. In the end, it is the Seventh Cavalry that saves the day.
