Bronco taking a herd of horses to Montana starts to cross Mark Tanner's ranch which he thought was open range. Tanner and his men stop Bronco telling him he can't cross. When Bronco starts to argue, Tanner's men drag him off his horse, beat him up and scatter his horses. The injured Bronco makes it to the home of small rancher Joe Russo where Joe and his wife Claire help Bronco. At the same time Joe's seventeen year old daughter Robin takes a deep interest as well. Tanner is trying to force the small ranchers to sell to him by having his hired gun Dove drive away ranch hands. Bronco stays on to help Joe plus he wants the $300 due him for his lost horses. Bronco suggests the small ranchers band together but they refuse until Bronco collects his $300 by gunning down Dove who drew first. Claire is jealous of Robin's interest in Bronco who spurns Claire. A drunk Joe drowns when Claire refuses to help him but the decision haunts her which Tanner uses to frame Bronco for Joe's murder. Written by Anonymous
