Bud Lawton, one of the Bar 20 cowboys, asks Hoppy to let him stay on at the ranch for room and board. Bud ran away from home when he was young after an argument with his father and has been a rootless drifter ever since. He has grown to consider the ranch as his home and Hoppy as a father figure. After he receives a letter telling him his real father has died and he is the majority heir to his sprawling ranch, he is murdered by two hired killers. Traveling to Bud's hometown, Hoppy, California, and Jimmy find that Kit Moyer, a Bud lookalike, is impersonating the dead man in order to sell the ranch to crooked townsman Mark Foster over his "sister's" objections. When Hoppy and his friends expose the plot, they are arrested by the town's corrupt sheriff and falsely accused of Bud's murder.- Written by Gabe Taverney (firstname.lastname@example.org)
