A cowpuncher with the incomparably cliched name of Trueman Rock returns to the town of Wagontongue after six years away. He has a history of gunfights there, but has since gone straight. The town has "grown some" since he was last there, but some of Trueman's old friends have suffered economically whilst a recently arrived ranching clan, the Prestons, have somehow been able to undercut the market and thrive out at Sunset Pass.
It doesn't take Trueman long to bump into the Prestons, most notably their pretty yet sad eldest daughter Thiry, with whom he falls instantly in love, and their mean, wild eldest son Ash, who seems to have an uncommonly intense regard for his sister, scaring off each of her many suitors' in turn. As Trueman starts to work for the family and get closer to Thiry, he discovers the secret of their success and a showdown with Ash becomes increasingly inevitable...
