Star cowgirl Eileen Sedgwick takes a more passive role than normal in this standard Western. Mary Anderson (Sedgwick) is a girl of the West who has a lot of trouble on her hands. Her little brother is imperiled by a cattle stampede, but he is rescued just in time by a stranger known as the Spider (Barney Furey). Then bandits rob a stagecoach, and Mary's father is killed. The law rounds up two of the bad men, along with the Spider, and they are all thrown in jail. The three of them escape and go their separate ways. Mary happens on her father's money, which was buried and hidden, and this is the cue for the bandits to attack her. the Spider, of course, is there to come to her rescue and the sheriff's men show up just in time to round up the bad men. The Spider is revealed to be a state marshal, and he and Mary unite.
