Mike McGann is sent by a government official in Texas to help rich rancher Judd Hastings get squatters off his land. When he arrives, he realizes Hastings is actually running everyone out of the region and illegally seizing their cattle.

After coming to rancher Ben Curran's rescue, Mike vows to help others get their property back. Marian Hastings begins to realize that her father is in the wrong, particularly after learning he plans a stampede to disrupt Mike and the others. Thrown from her horse and knocked unconscious, Marian is in grave danger. Hastings tries to save his daughter and is killed. She and Mike decide to run the Hastings ranch together.
