Synopsis by Hans J. Wollstein

A nasty rancher orders his men to kill his own half-brother for a piece of valuable ranch land in this low-budget PRC oater starring singing cowboy Eddie Dean. Bill Ryan (Kermit Maynard) is indeed cowardly ambushed by Brad Barton's (Bob Duncan) henchmen, and the following day, Barton and his equally crooked attorney, Alton Small (Ted Adams), issue an order evicting Bill's daughter, Robin (Shirley Patterson), and son, Freckles (Johnny McGovern), from their home. After courageously standing up to Barton's threats, Robin and Freckles find allies in drifters Eddie Dean and Soapy Jones (Roscoe Ates), who are secretly in league with a very much alive Bill. Eddie manages to turn one of Barton's hirelings, Gringo (Jack O'Shea), and with the further assistance of the sheriff (Frank Ellis), the Ryan ranch is saved. In between the gun play, Eddie Dean sings "Tumbleweed Trail," "Lonesome Cowboy," and "Careless Darlin'."
