This no-budget Western was produced by William Pizor as the first in a series of oaters starring child actor Little "Buck" Dale. Little "Buck" leaves his sister Mary (Karla Cowan) to fend for herself against a gang of Mexican bandits while he fetches the sheriff. Happily, drifter Tom Farley comes along to save the girl from a fate worse than death, but she is soon kidnapped by gang leader Jack Ellis (Captain C.E. Anderson). Ellis is after the map to a hidden gold mine, but Mary is once again rescued in the nick of time, this time by Tom, Little Buck, and the sheriff (Horace B. Carpenter). Although his name appeared above the title, Dale had less to do than co-star Al Lane. Not to be confused with fellow cowboy actor Allan "Rocky" Lane, Al Lane wrote several Westerns for the Tansey brothers, Robert Emmett and John, and later became a production manager. The Tanseys ran out of money following The Galloping Kid and the proposed Little "Buck" Dale series was scrapped.
