this was cowboy country once;a land of hardworking hands who frode for the brand come hell or high water. now a different breed is moving in -big outfits backed by eastern syndicaters and run by power-hungry managers,men who figure to make a profit, even if it means cowding a cowboy too far... hugh hitchcock tried to keep the peace between rancher and cowboy,but when push came to shove the wagon bosss knew where his loyalities lay.and when the ranchers stole his cattle, when they lynched his friend and hired a back shooter to put him in his grave,hekept on fighting..because even if they took everthing he had,they couldn't touch his pride-or his willingnes to fight to the end
