A Western tale of a greedy land baron who, after the war, tries to force small ranch owners to sell their ranches and cattle to him at below market prices when land and cattle prices are depressed right after the Civil War. Clint, an officer in the Union army, returns from the war and finds out about the land baron's tactics. He organizes a six-hundred-mile cattle drive to help the ranchers survive. The drive goes from northern Texas to Cheyenne, Wyoming. The land baron sends men after the drive to stop it. When the drive is successful, the baron's men steal the money from the sale of the cattle. The baron continues to play dirty tricks on Clint's father to get him to sell the ranch. In the end, the baron is caught in one of his dirty tricks and pays the price.
