In his second and last Western for low-budget company First Division, veteran cowboy star Hoot Gibson played Neil Gibson, Jr., a city boy turned rodeo champion much against the wishes of his wealthy father (Oscar Apfel). After a drunken spree in Chicago, Neil and his brother-in-law Bert (Charlie Hill) find themselves on a freight train headed West. They embark in the middle of nowhere and obtain jobs as cowhands on a ranch belonging to pretty Ann Ware (June Gale). When the foreman, Dorgan (Stanley Blystone), is revealed to be in cahoots with a combine that is attempting to take over the ranch, Ann replaces him with Neil. The combine turns out to be headed by Thomas Stark (Warner Richmond), Gibson, Sr.'s crooked partner. In the end, Stark and his gang are ousted from the area by the cowboys and Neil proposes to Ann, who gladly accepts. Leading lady June Gale was Hoot Gibson's girlfriend at the time. She later married music eccentric Oscar Levant. Leaving First Division, Gibson signed with Walter Futter's Diversion Pictures for his final series of solo starring Westerns.
