In "Border Town", Joe Alvarado's family has occupied his land for generations. Joe is an old man now and has always lived in peace with his neighbors. But Grant Mitchell of the Bar M thinks now is the time to make his move. He orders the irrigation system on Joe's land to be stoppered. It is only the first step in a plan to force Joe to sell out. A bullet is another way. Joe is badly wounded. For the first time in his life, Marshall Greg Hudson has compromised himself and taken money from Grant Mitchell to do nothing. At this point a stranger shows up in town. No one knows where he's from or where he's going, but it soon becomes apparent that he alone will stand up for Joe Alvarado.
