As described in a film magazine, Tharon Last (Dalton) is the daughter of Jim Last (Walling), the last man who led the settlers of the valley against the oppression of Basil "Buck" Courtrey (Campeau), whose rustlers terrorized the community. Courtrey admires Tharon, the only woman of the valley that he considers fit to be his mate, and murders her father to deprive her of his protection. Tharon swears revenge and becomes leader of the settlers, which results in a long struggle with many fights.
