Roy Rogers and The Sons Of The Pioneers set up an 1890's style trail ride and invite some big money types, with the ulterior motive of introducing them to a gal pal with a goldmine that's waiting to be developed. Unfortunately, invitee Paul Fix turns out to be a gangster who has the whole party kidnapped and blames it on Roy.

Fast-paced and with a decent amount of action, South Of Santa Fe is another typical but fun adventure for Roy and friends with a handful of great tunes on display.

Speaking of the music, this is one of those rare times where The Sons Of The Pioneers were allowed to show their vocal range and individual talents for singing. Usually in pictures, they're only allowed to sing in unison or as backing for Roy Rogers or sometimes Gene Autry.
