Jackson hates Mexicans, and 'Lupe' Chavez has a life-long hatred of gringos. They are rustling each other's cattle, raiding and killing on both sides of the border, and heading for a bloody showdown. Only the Texas Rangers stand between them. Andy is teamed up with Ranger Farley Brackett, a former Confederate soldier with his own prejudices against Mexican people.
