Trampas returns to El Paso, Texas to sell his dad's ranch. His uncle is killed when he tries to deposit the proceeds at the express office. Trampas searches for the two men who committed the murder but with no luck until Wismer returns to the army post sick. A local businessman/rancher Mike McGoff learns Wismer and his partner Judson have found gold in Apache territory. While stealing a map to it McGoff kills Wismer as Dr. Beldon sleeps drunk on duty. Trampas takes the map from McGoff and both decide to go together after Judson. They are joined by Judson's wife who is looking for him and later by Dr. Beldon who thinks he allowed Wismer to die. They find Judson but must fend off attacks by the Apaches on the way out with deadly results for most of the party.
