The two brothers and the little adopted daughter of the household grew up from childhood together. The girl and the younger brother were childhood sweethearts, he being so different in nature from his elder brother, who was considered the bad man and dead shot of the hills. The younger brother has been living in the valley for a long time and returns to his home at the time the story opens. He is quite a contrast to his elder brother, in fact to the whole family, refined, educated, and, of course, a revelation to the little girl, who, though betrothed to the elder brother, is strongly attracted by him. Hence there is a renewal of childhood affection. This the elder brother ferociously objects to, making it understood that the girl is engaged to him, so the younger boy, for the sake of peace, decides to leave the place. However, fate decrees it otherwise, for an old feud is reawakened and he joins his brother to tight the common enemy. This incident reverses conditions.
