But his nomadic life has taken Panhandle Smith far from home. When he finally returns for a visit, he finds that his family has moved to New Mexico, his father has been cheated by an unscrupulous rancher named Hardman, and his boyhood sweetheart, Lucy Blake, is being forced to marry Hardman's son. There's only one way out of this for everybody, and it all depends on Panhandle. But Hardman has no intention of allowing Panhandle to succeed!
