The Liberal Kansas area is in trouble. The town is without a Marshal and the nearby farmers are unable to grow crops due to the summer drought and trail riders that run cattle over their land. Bat Masterson arrives to bring law and order and his Deputy accidently finds a variety of wheat that will withstand the drought. But the farmers are giving up and leaving and Bat must convince tham to stay. He wants them to continue farming and also help round up the local gang of outlaws. Written by

Hey, Masterson. You didn't think you were gonna stop my friends from gettin' me outta here, did yuh?
Marshal Bat Masterson
If they do, you'll go out feet first with a bullet right between the eyes and not in the back like you gave McKeon.
