At the end of the Civil War, Homestead laws found a swarm of pioneers heading west. A situation that required bringing justice to the wild plains. The Lone Ranger and Tonto sit on top of a bluff, lazily watching a wagon train as it slowly snakes across the prairie. They continue to wwatch as a camp is set up, and the evening routine of starting the cooking fires begins. Suddenly a thunderous sound builds. A buffalo herd is stampeding straight for the wagon train. The Lone Ranger springs into action.
Although there isn’t anything he can do to stop the herd, he offers encouragement to go on when many of the pioneers want to turn back. Is the opportunity the Western life offers worth the sacrifice? Threats persist, and dangers have the menfolk unsettled. The women prove to be courageous enough, but the men who will have to do the fighting have doubts. Will it take more than just the Lone Ranger to pull things together?
An indian band is discovered. Are they hostile? What does the future hold for this wagon train?
