Jim Redfern (Randolph Scott) dreams to become the owner of own cattle ranch. Together with his partners Mike Evans and Ling, he travels along the Caribou Trail, deep into British Columbia. On the way to them joins the old resident of those places Grizzly Winters, an unsuccessful prospector, embraced by a gold rush.
They encounter people of Frank Walsh who are marred by their cattle. Evans gets a serious injury, and Redfern is forced to amputate his left hand. But the most formidable trials are waiting for them yet to come. Indians, gold.
