Plot Overview

It's the sod-busters against the ranchers and the homesteaders have hired Gil Martin and his crew to protect them against cattlemen intent on driving them out of Laramie. Gil Martin has a different agenda and it involves starting a range war instead of stopping it. Slim Sherman and Jess Harper are trying to keep a lid on a volatile situation, which is only made worse when rancher Luke Rawlins is murdered and the homesteaders are blamed. The Laramie Basin is in danger of blowing wide open and its up to Slim, Jess and the homesteaders to get to the truth behind Gil Martin before it's too late.
