Going after a gang of bandits who have just robbed teh Wells Fargo company, Sheriff John Higgins (John Wayne) shoots and wounds one of them, later though, when he stumbles over the dead body he has (supposedly) shot, he finds out it was Dan Matthews (Frank Ball), his very best friend and mentor - what he doesn't know of course is that the real bandits only made it look like Dan was one of them and the Sheriff had shot him to throw John off their trail.

Overcome with grief, John Higgins quits his job as Sheriff and moves to a hut in the mountains as prospector.

A year later: Dan's daughter Beth (Lucile Browne) comes to town to take over her father's inheritance, but she is held up by a gang of outlaws. John Higgins, who just passes by, saves her life, but she thinks him - all dirty and unshaven - to be an outlaw as well.

Williams (Gabby Hayes), the new Sheriff in town, persuades John to give up his prospecting and become Beth's foreman - and after he has washed and shaven, Beth doesn't even recognize him as the outlaw who saved her life. And of course she doesn't know that he is the man who (supposedly) killed her dad - and thje whole town keeps hush about it for the time being ... all but Dickson (LeRoy Mason), one of the outlaws who really shot Dan Matthews, who wants to marry Beth for the land she owns and wants John out of the way. And after he has told her John's little secret, she also recognizes him as the outlaw from when she came to town, and what's more, she witnesses him secretly emptying the Wells Fargo safe (actually in an attempt to save Wells Fargo's money from being robbed, but she doesn't know that). Subsequently, Beth throws John out and never wants to see her again.

In the meantime, Dickson has the glorious idea to rustle the horses Beth has grown on her ranch, just to make her more dependable from him, but John has somehow gotten wind of it, and with the help of Sheriff Williams and his Indian friends, he can spoilt he rustlers plan and make one of them (Buffalo Bill jr) talk and confess it was really them who killed Dan Mattews and only pinned it on John to throw him off their trail (which almost worked). But Dickson has meanwhile fojnd out he is fighting a losing battle and sought refuge with Beth, making up a tale that makes John look even more of an outlaw ...

Beth tries to protect Dickson from John, but ultimately it ends in a chase at the end of which John runs Dickson down ...

2 months later: John has meanwhile returned to his hut in the mountains and taken up his prospecting business, when Beth, who by now knows what really happened, pays him a visit ... and it might just be that she never again leaves ...

 

As with most B-Westerns John Wayne did for Monogram (especially those done by Robert N.Bradbury), this one features an interesting, rather unusual plot and plenty of more usual Western action like shoot-outs and massive horseriding (along with a chase where a motorcar is involved), which all makes up for less-than-an-hour of good entertainment.
