John Brent (Hobart Bosworth) returns from the East to tell his fellow cattlemen that they will have to leave the range and make way for the homesteaders by heading for Mexico. On the train, Brent's son Hugh (Roy Stewart) has met Ellen Crawley (Bessie Love), one of a family of homesteaders. When the cattlemen start their big drive towards Mexico, the herd stampedes and destroys the Crawleys' home. Although the resentful cattlemen have no sympathy for the Crawleys, Hugh insists that they bring them along in the grub wagon. Ellen's giving personality eventually wins over even the most callous of the cattlemen, and at the Mexican border they all take a collection so that she and her family can start over. Hugh promises to marry her once he is settled.
