Idaho, 1888. Wade Dellums receives a cryptic letter from his childhood friend Ben Taylor asking for his help. Since Ben isn't the kind of fellow to ask for help unless there's big trouble afoot, Wade doesn't hesitate to put aside his job as a rancher, cowboy, and rifle salesman to ride to Idaho.
When Wade arrives in White Willow, the town nearby Ben's home, he hears talk of a ruthless cattleman named Charlie Tate who wants Ben's ranch. The only problem is that Ben refuses to sell. Wade does a little more sniffing around town to try and gather as much information on Tate as he can-and what he hears isn't good. Tate has a reputation for stopping at nothing to get what he wants.
