Ex-cavalryman Yale Cannon rode to Antelope for two very different reasons - in search of an old sweetheart and to bring out Red Effingham, a gunslinging killer the sheriff had locked up in the ranch town's jailhouse. Cannon arrived on the outskirts to a confrontation with two cowpuncher brothers, proddy over rustled beef. After his blazing six-gun talked louder than words, he moved in warily, using one mission as cover for the other. His delving for old time's sake quickly met opposition, but introduced him to suffragist schoolteacher Kate McDowell. Resourceful Kate revealed that hatred between the cowmen and a settler community led by Abel Pryor, a religious fanatic, was coming to a showdown. With Effingham busted from jail, the clash was set to be violent and bloody!
