A feud between two wealthy and powerful ranchers reaches a new level when one of them (McCord's friend) imports barbed wire from the East and plans to use it to fence in his herd. The other rancher, believing in the open range and gathering up as many unbranded "mavericks" as possible en route to market, sets up a stampede to wipe out the new fence, and who cares about the consequences.

Because post holes can be dug faster than graves and no man in history has yet stopped new ideas and new ways, you remember that.
