Mr. Black of New York City owns the O-bar-O ranch at Silversprings, Arizona, USA and agrees to the son of his friend, Mr. Somerville, coming out from England, to work at the ranch to improve his health. Young “Pash” Moore is sent to the station to meet him and first makes the acquaintance of Tony Somerville. Pash tells Tony that Indians killed his parents and a cowboy named “Daddy” Moore had brought him up. On the way back to the ranch with Tony, Pash is alarmed to see “Two-gun” Grundle, a notorious villain with the reputation of being a rustler.
