The story follows the adventures of a cattle rancher named Jim Traft and his loyal companion, a Mexican vaquero named Felipe. Together, they navigate the challenges of cowboy life, from cattle rustlers to untrustworthy business partners.

Adams truly brings the setting to life, painting a picture of the wide-open plains and dusty trails that the characters must traverse.
