Trampas in Arizona is returning to Shiloh when he encounters a group of men in a fight with a Mescalero hunting party ending with the death of one of the men. For safety Trampas rides with the men only one of whom is armed. He learns the group is the first Arizona prisoners released on probation who are to convert a ranch bought by the prison system into a training facility for prisoners. The convict killed in the fight was supposed to be the foreman of the ranch and train the men. The man in charge tricks the local US Marshal into thinking Trampas is the convict who was killed as he needs an experienced foreman. This forces Trampas to stay and puts him in the middle of the feud between the prisoners and the town. The Marshal follows the law but has no love for the rehabilitation program. The only person helpful to the convicts is the eastern educated daughter of the Marshal. Although Trampas wants to return to Shiloh, he sees a future for the men as he helps them.
