A wealthy eastern young lady Caroline Witman and her aunt meet a good-time cowboy Jeff Tolliver on the train on their way to San Francisco. When the train is forced to stop near Medicine Bow due to a damaged bridge, Caroline badgers The Virginian for a ride to Medicine Bow getting more than she wanted. The Virginian sees her as a spoiled brat out for a good time but Jeff is entranced by her. Jeff starts doing some business with a small time rustler to have money to escort Caroline but The Virginian is suspicious of Jeff and tries to persuade Caroline to put a stop to it. When she spurns Jeff's request to marry him due to his lack of finances, Jeff talks his rustler friend into making a big score. Jeff's close friend Colby is killed trying to help Jeff during his getaway when the rustlers are caught. The Virginian is forced to deal with Jeff and Caroline suddenly realizes what she has caused.
