SYNOPSIS

Sheriff Buck Gordon hopes to stop a range war brought about when his stepfather, Dad Turner, trespassed on John Walton's land. At a church peace meeting, Vandall urges Turner to accuse Walton of cattle rustling, and Buck intervenes to prevent a gunfight. After the meeting, Clint Turner, Buck's stepbrother, visits his girl friend, Judy Walton. Walton refuses to let Judy marry Clint. Later as Walton reads a letter from Jed Biggers, he is shot by an unseen figure. Walton's ranch hands accuse Clint of the crime, and Buck unhappily agrees to arrest him. At Clint's trial, he is found guilty, and later Biggers arrives at the Walton ranch to explain that Walton believed the herd he had purchased from Biggers was rustled. The conversation is interrupted when a shadowy figure shoots and wounds Buck. As Buck has his wound dressed, Biggers finds a piece of the mysterious man's clothing hanging on the fence. The next day, as Walton's men prepare to hang Clint, Turner and his men, Biggers, Buck and Judy ride out to the site. Buck notices a tear in the pants of Walton's foreman, who admits they were given to him that morning by Vandall. It is revealed that Vandall murdered Walton to prevent him from learning that Biggers bought the cattle from Vandall, who stole them from Turner. With the range war over, Judy and Clint are ... +
