Don Sebastian Ruiz is murdered by outlaws leaving his son Pablo patron of the Ruiz hacienda. By failing to leave a will, Don Sebastian has left the fate of the hundred year old Ruiz Grant in legal limbo. Henry and Angelina, along with Jean and Catherine, head for New Mexico to pay their last respects to the Don and help Pablo hunt down his father's killers. Meanwhile, gunfighter and hired killer Alex Cassidy rides into Fort Collins and recognizes Jenny from her imprisonment at Madame Min's in Denver. When she refuses his advances he spreads lies about her past, splitting the town for and against their new school teacher. On learning of the accusations Jeb turns in his deputy's badge and walks into Larry Pruitt's whiskey hole to confront his wife's accuser. When Henry makes a desperate ride back to the canyon to gather his brothers to help Pablo protect his inheritance, they join together and head for New Mexico. In a bold move against Pablo's challengers, the men put 1,600 head of Ruiz cattle on the Goodnight Trail bound for the ranches of Ian Pelletier, and Clint Rush. While the crew fights the herd north, Jean and Henry pit wits against an unscrupulous ex-army Colonel for control of Pablo's land, and men across Wyoming and Colorado are talking about the fast gun of Jeb Pelletier.
