The feud between cattle ranchers and sheep men took center stage once again in this fairly effective Jack Hoxie western. Hoxie is the foreman on one of those despised sheep ranches. When a neighboring cattleman (William Welsh) is found murdered, Hoxie finds himself the prime suspect. The real killer, however, is Hoxie's employer (Claude Payton), who not only desired the neighbor's ranch for his sheep but also the dead man's niece (Lillian Rich) for a wife. Based on a story by pulp writer William McLeod Raine, this typical silent oater was directed by one of the best in the business, Robert North Bradbury.
