The men from Rancho Bravo have just driven five thousand head of Longhorns north from Texas to Abilene, Kansas. Once the herd has been sold, the men look forward to sampling everything the cattle town has to offer. But foreman Jay Durango has other ideas. The men had better toe the line, or they’ll have Town Marshal ‘Bear River’ Tom Smith to deal with. But when a fight breaks out following a visit to Abilene´s opera house, the Rancho Bravo boys—including Billy Calhoun, Tom Calhoun’s youngest son—wind up in jail.
It never rains but it pours. And while his men are locked away, Jay encounters an old enemy in the shape of gunman Lee Kedrick, who has some plans of his own.
Lee Kedrick wants to become rich any way possible. No matter if he has to kill for that ...
Jay is the only man who stands in his way.
