Rick Martin returns home to Casper, Wyoming, where he is unwanted. A grave marker beside his mother's has Rick's name on it, and the town council orders Rick to leave town by midnight. Rick informs townspeople that outlaw Tom Quentin's gang is on its way, but his warnings go unheeded.

Rick learns his mother was cheated out of her ranch by Judd and murdered by him. After a fistfight, Judd hires gunfighter Lem Sutter to ambush Rick, but when Sutter ends up dead, Bat has no choice but to place Rick under arrest. Bat tries to head off Quentin on the trail, but is shot. Townspeople now beg Rick for help. He is able to kill Quentin in a fair fight, and Laura does likewise to Judd when he tries to shoot Rick in the back. Rick and Laura pack up and leave for California.
