In this western from RKO George O'Brien leads the cattleman against eastern logging interests as personified by Morgan Wallace. Wallace is your typical robber baron of the era.

Wallace however does know the value of publicity and he even brings along a Nellie Bly type reporter Marjorie Reynolds to insure he's portrayed favorably in the press. Another of his hires is gunfighter Robert Fiske for dirtier work.

Basically Wallace is fraudulently using the Homestead Act to have his loggers take out claims and sign over water and timber rights to him. The idea is strip the land of its resources and skedaddle. Fiske is around t take care of complainers.

Chill Wills has some good moments as O'Brien's sidekick. This will be a popular western with environmentalists.
