Sybil Estabrook comes west with her maid in order to
visit her brother, Oscar, who has been sent to the plains
to make a man of himself. Oscar, who has been losing
at cards to Victor Dufresne, is forced by him to rob
a stagecoach in order to pay off his gambling debts.
Hal Emory, an honest cowpoke, rescues Sybil from a landslide,
winning her affection. Hal later learns of Oscar's actions
and himself takes the blame for the holdup in order
to protect the boy. Dufresne plans to kill Oscar, and
Hal arrives just in time to prevent the crime. Dufresne
is later killed by falling rocks, Oscar settles his
account with the law, and Hal wins Sybil's love.
