The Vernon brand is going to be the biggest in the territory and Harry Vernon's plans are working out well. Then rustling starts and a stage-coach is held up with some of Harry's money on board. Phil Jones is the Elverton deputy marshal and Harry's nephew. He soon has one of the hold-up men in the jail house, but somebody frees the man. Then the marshal is brutally murdered and the young deputy finds himself on the trail of the killers. Soon to follow is a vicious range war and not until the mystery is solved can lasting peace return to a troubled land.
