Jack Hare is a young New Englander who has decided to travel to the West. He is rescued from sure death in the Utah desert by an old settler named August Naab, a Mormon patriarch. Jack is taken to Nabb's ranch and learns that it can be a dangerous place, since it is challenged by cattle thieves and a corrupt rancher who is after Naab's water rights. The greatest danger Hare faces, though, is over Mescal, a half-Navajo shepherdess with whom he falls in love. She is already promised in marriage to Naab's firstborn son. Hare must find a way to stop the marriage without killing the son of his benefactor. Mescal runs away as her solution to the problem, and Jack heads out after her. On the way back, a gun battle with rustlers brings the story to an incredible conclusion.
