Roy Rogers (as Roy), Smiley Burnette (as Frog), George "Gabby" Hayes (as Gabby), and "The Sons of the Pioneers" defend Cherokee City ranchers against taxes imposed on transporting cattle. Edmund McDonald (as Ross Lambert) leads the evil-doers.

The story is slight. Mr. Burnette and Mr. Hayes team-up for a ludicrous "two-men-in-the-horse" joke. This, and action sequences appear to have been speeded up for dramatic and/or comic effect. The film includes a generous, interesting amount of location work; climaxing with a storm-drenched river scene. Unfortunately, the relatively low budget makes certain sequences appear more technically incompetent than exciting. Song highlights are when Mr. Rogers sings with Riverboat workers, on "Who's Gonna Help Me Sing?" and "The River Robin".
