The bull escapes, due to the carelessness of Windy Lucas. The mishap is seen by Larch Keegan, young rancher in love with Cherry Lucas, Windy's adopted daughter. Larch, jealous of Tom as a rival for Cherry and for water rights, fixes the blame on the wrangler. The bull terrorizes the countryside, injuring farm women and killing other bulls. Larch and his brothers, Hoy and Happy, incite the ranchers to shoot the bull on sight, but Tom begs for time to capture it alive. Tom corners and lassos the bull in the hills, but his horse is no match for the bull, who escapes again. Tom then sets out to capture the Widow Maker, a famous wild horse, knowing the horse is the only one capable of holding the lassoed bull. He does so and trains the horse in secret. Larch grows so jealous of Tom that he vows to burn down his ranch house. To prevent this, Cherry marries Tom but the latter, discovering why Cherry rushed into the marriage, refuses to live with her as man and wife. Written by Les Adams See less
