Matt Corbin is a down-and-out drifter and part-time cowboy. Hes called Hard Times, as he seems to have a dark cloud of bad luck hanging over him. Hes out of tobacco, coffee and down to his last dollar, as he heads for the gold strike town of Deadwood in the Dakota Territories of the year 1887. His horse pulls up lame, and it begins to rain. Hes about a mile away from shelter in the town of Lead. In a saloon there, hes told there might be a line riding job at the Rocking M ranch about four miles north of town. As he rides north, his horse dies and he has to walk to the ranch, where hes hired. There, he meets and falls for a girl with hair the color of fox fur with sunlight shining through it. From there on, his luck takes a turn for the better. However, riders from a rival ranch shoot and kill the girls guardians. Will Matt and the girl manage to escape?
