A lone robber held up a stage of the Great Western Stage Company outside of Lordsburg and made off with $15‚000 in currency. Captain Hanson of the Arizona Rangers decides to assign one of his best men‚ Buck Windsor‚ to pursue the thief and reclaim the money. It is believed that the bandit came from the Perdition Range country‚ which has been hard hit by low beef prices. Buck is fortunate to encounter Tick‚ an Apache Indian who works as an outrider for the great Matador Ranch‚ the largest cattle-raising outfit the Perdition Range. Hired by the Matador‚ Buck believes the man he is looking for must reside on one of the smaller ranchers on Perdition Range‚ but what he cannot anticipate is the hostility and suspicion the local ranchers have toward anyone riding for the Matador.
