A western centeriing in the town of Durango, Colorado. When two cowboys returning from a cattle drive find a gold watch along the trail, they become the prime suspects in a murder. The watch belonged to a local rancher who cherished that watch because it was presented to him by the President. When the news gets out about the murder, the ones who actually killed the rancher devise a scheme to halt the investigation into the rancher's murder. A lynching, they believe, would bring an end to the sheriff's investigation. That is only the beginning of trouble in Durango. An exciting western from start to finish.
