Jed Hawkins (Gordon De Main) & his daughter Virginia (Betty Mack) plus the widow (Fern Emmett), who has designs on Jed, are jopining a wagontrain to California, where Jed has inherited a profitable claim from his brother. Unfortunately though, Jed takes to drinking a bit, & soon tells their guide O'Hara (Al Bridge) about this claim ... & O'Hara is mighty crooked, his business being leading wagontrains into Indian ambushes, then dividing the loot with his Indian friends. & not only would Jed's claim be a valuable addition to the loot, also O'Hara has designs on Virginia.

But thank goodness Tennessee (Tom Tyler) stops by, & he immediately grows suspicious about O'Hara & informs the cavallery ... & he also catches the eye of Virginia. However, when she sees him with Indian girl Lola (Mildred Rogers) - whom he helps after she has been beaten up by her real lover O'Hara - Virginia misinterprets the situation & breaks up with Tennessee, even sends him away.

Tennessee however secretly keeps a close watch on the wagontrain, & soon enough he notices it going straight through Indian country. When he returns to the wagontrain though to adress O'Hara about this little mishap, O'Hara guns him down.

Soon enough the Indians attack, & kidnap Virginia, but the wounded Tennessee has meanwhile recovered & can not only chase away the Indians & save Virginia but also save the wagontrain from a buffalo-stampede, all before the cavallery arrives.

O'Hara though is gunned down by his own jealous Indian girlfriend Lola.

 

The story of this film no doubt asks for an epic treatment, but the budget was hardly big enough for sufficient wagons to make a wagontrail, so the customary wide range shots are suspiciously absent here. Both the attacking Indians and the cavallery are rather small groups as well (the Indians beign barely enough to seem menacing).

However all these budgetary restraints lend a rather enndearing quality to the film & make it an ok B-Western.
