This Jack Hoxie Western, made during his contract with Universal, has just about every cliché in the book, beginning with the inevitable feud between the cowmen and the sheepmen. Nevertheless, trade magazine Motion Picture News promised, "Will fill the bill wherever fast Westerners please 'em." Peace Parker (Hoxie) has been falsely jailed, and when he is released he resolves to track down whoever framed him. But his bad luck isn't over yet -- he hears that his girl, Jess Marshall (Lola Todd), has become engaged to another man. Parker finds out that the sheepmen have a plot to drive their herds onto the ranch land belonging to Jess' father (Clarke Comstock). Jess is kidnapped and Parker goes to her rescue. He discovers that she still loves him, and he goes on to defeat the sheepherders at their dirty game and clear his own name in the bargain.
