Sammy, freed as a slave at the end of the Civil War, wants more than anything to become a cowboy. When forced to flee his home after an unfortunate incident results in the death of his old master, Sammy heads west to Texas to realize his dream. He soon finds that freedom isn't all it is made out to be and lands himself in a whole parcel of trouble. Eventually, he is taken in and befriended by Drew Morgan, a Texan cattle rancher.

After an unfortunate incident with a snake, Sammy learns how to use his gun, and with practice, becomes a fast draw.
