In spite of what the title implies, this picture takes place not in Texas, but in the Australian gold fields. Director Edmund Mitchell) based this adventure on his own novel. When Harry Murray saves an old prospector from dying of thirst, the prospector rewards him with half of his gold claim. But the map is stolen by ruffian Potosi Jim. The claim, as it turns out, is not all that rich, but farther into the desert, Murray finds a two centuries-old skeleton of a shipwrecked sailor who discovered a substantial gold deposit -and, yes, he left a map, too. Murray and his brother locate the ore and the Australian gold rush is on.
