In this western, William Farnum plays yet another Zane Grey character. Duane Steele (Farnum) is a Texas Ranger who is determined to get the outlaws out of his part of the Lone Star state for good. Right off, he comes across some cattle rustlers, who are manhandling a young lady named Ray (Louise Lovely). Steele rescues her, and her father (Charles Clary) gratefully offers him a job on his ranch. Since this will put him close to the outlaw camp (not to mention Ray), Steele accepts. He proceeds to round up the outlaws, dead or alive -- all but one. Leader Cyrus Longstreth eludes his grasp until Steele finally figures out that he is Ray's father, the grateful ranch owner. But the truth is that Longstreth is tired of the rustling business and his henchmen have been forcing him to remain with the gang. Ultimately the dilemma is solved to everyone's satisfaction -- except, of course, the rustlers.
