Laconic cowboy Dave Blasingame wanders the Wild West with his faithful dog Brown and the occasional companionship of pal Burgundy Smith.
The series was developed from a 1959 episode of "Dick Powell's Zane Grey Theatre" written and directed by Sam Peckinpah titled "Trouble at Tres Cruces".

In 1966, Four Star Productions syndicated four of its half-hour Western series under the title of "The Westerners." They were "The Black Saddle," "Johnny Ringo," "Law of the Plainsman," and "The Westerner." The series had a new opening credits sequence featuring Michael Ansara, Peter Breck, Don Durant, and Brian Keith. Keenan Wynn appeared in new opening and closing host segments. The original closing credits were retained.
