  • It is the 1870s in the Wyoming Territory. Slim Sherman and his fourteen-year-old brother Andy try to hang on to their ranch after their father was shot by a land grabber. They augment their slight cattle ranch income by serving as a stagecoach station near Laramie.

  • The brothers were helped by their father's long time friend named Jonsey who was their cook and house keeper and helped run the relay station. One day, a stranger and drifter named Jess Harper rides onto the ranch and Andy Sherman takes to him immediately. Jess and Slim quickly form a dislike for one another and almost come to blows. The arrival and departure of a gang of outlaws interrupts their fight. At the urging of young Andy, Jess helps Slim subdue the leader and the gang. Slim asks Jess to stay on and work at the ranch. Which Jess reluctantly accepts. Thus began the saga of the unforgettable friendship of Jess and Slim played by Robert Fuller (Jess) and John Smith (Slim) that was unmatched by any series of the time or since.
