Two members of a three man mining camp are shot at with one falling dead. The third partner Nagel arrives saying he saw Sioux Indians make the attack. The two men ride to town where Nagel gathers a scruffy crowd to go teach the Indians a lesson. Cheyenne arriving in town at the same time is introduced by telegrapher Gib Anders to eastern newspaperwoman Fay Kirby. She is there to do interviews and make sketches for the eastern newspapers. At that moment two Sioux Indians - Little Chief and Yellow Cloud - ride into town. Nagel says they are the attackers but Cheyenne intervenes. Yellow Cloud tries to run but is shot and killed. Little Chief is allowed to escape by Cheyenne. Col. Preston asks Cheyenne to talk to Chief Sitting Bull to keep the peace. Cheyenne reluctantly agrees to make the trip. The next day on the trip he sees a horse followed by the reporter Fay Kirby on foot. He is forced to take her along plus she gets her interview with the Chief but she betrays Cheyenne.
