Haley Winthrop, growing up in a Chicago orphanage, wants a home and family. After corresponding briefly with Lucas Stone, a rancher in Montana, he sends a ticket to Haley to marry him.

Haley is a naïve young woman who endows her future husband with wonderful attributes and is excited to pull up stakes and move to the wilds of Montana.
Unfortunately, the stagecoach is held up by a bandit, Jesse Kincaid. He wants Haley, not money. After taking her from the coach, he starts telling Haley dire things about her intended. Haley is not interested in hearing anything negative about her future husband.

Kincaid tells Haley terrible things about Lucas Stone; he had Jesse's father killed. This wealthy rancher is grabbing land as it becomes available (by killing the owners). Haley is desperate to hang on to her dream.

All 3 people in this story have strong wills. Jesse wants Stone to implicate himself while rescuing his intended; Haley wants her dream to come true and Stone wants land more than a wife. All of these passions boil over and lead to death.

The plot is different but the execution was rather ho-hum.
