Plot Summary

  • Joe Benson owns a small ranch he works with his teenage son Will and daughter Amada. They are all at a square dance in Medicine Bow along with The Virginian and Tate. While there, Benson's neighbor Sam Donner and his son Mal come to town. They find a wagon load of barbed wire with Benson's name on it. Donner confronts Benson at the dance as he is for free range only. The Virginian breaks up the quarrel but later Mal draws Will outside and severely beats him. Benson is leaving on a trip to buy new breeding stock but now Will is unable to handle the ranch due to the injuries. The Virginian worried about Donner suggests Tate handle the ramrod duties as he has a few days coming. The mildly irritated Tate is hired by his friend Joe Benson to work on his ranch and watch over his teenage son and daughter while he's away on business. This puts Tate squarely in the middle of the dispute with Donner over a fence Benson wants him to build, as well as with a woman who arrives claiming to be Benson's fiancée, the children's rebelliousness, and a hired gun who comes to town with a wanted poster on Tate.
