Old pal Art James tells him that Ed Calder, a shady rancher who moved in a few months ago, might be his man. Jim joins Art at the Crazy K Ranch owned by Sam Kent and his daughter Sally, with Bill Dobbs as their foreman. Jim saves Sally from badman Lynx Merson, who is out to get her father for past transgressions. Later, it is discovered that El Garto, a bandit from below the border, is actually Merson, and is working with Calder. Written by Les Adams See less
