Texas ranch owner, Ivy Preston (Joan Bennett) accompanied by her grandmother Granna (May Robson) and her old ranch foreman now the trail boss Chuckawalla (Walter Brennan) is trying to move her cattle to market to sell them. The carpetbaggers are not only trying to seize her cattle without payment but want her ranch as well for their own ends.

A Confederate veteran named Kirk Jordan (Randolph Scott) who has had enough of war and desires to make wealth in America becomes involved with her. He convinces her to drive her cattle to Abilene, Kansas rather than Mexico but he is upset with her when he learns she wants to use the money to help the South continue fighting.
