Sam Paterson and Bobby Campbell rode to Texas to purchase a herd of cattle and bring them back to the Campbell ranch at Paradise Valley. But the deal came to a quick and violent end in San Antonio. In an alleyway, Bobby met his death at the hands of cattle broker Raven Dermott, who'd set his crooked, black heart on taking away the family's rich Colorado ranch. Sam should have known better than to let Bobby handle the money on his own. After giving the boy a decent burial, Paterson sets off for Abilene to warn Bobby's innocent sister Ruthie that Dermott is headed her way. She's the only thing between him and Paradise Valley. But in Abilene Sam finds he's a step behind - Dermott has already conned the girl and they're on their way to the ranch. If Sam can get to Colorado first he'll make sure Dermott never makes it to Paradise.
