Bud Birnie has just reached adulthood, and he's been presented with a stark choice: Take his highly cultured mother's offer of $10,000 and a grand tour of Europe, or accept his salt-of-the-earth dad's offer of a herd of cattle. The independent-minded Bud eschews both of these opportunities and sets off on his own -- only to find himself embroiled in a world of trouble.
