Jim Rayburn was the Texas Ranger assigned to the bad lands of west Texas from down by Alpine up past Mr. Lubbock's range. His wife was killed by a complete bad boy named Billy Blue Eyes. The gun fight in the middle of town was what Jim hoped it would be. He'd gotten through a year or more of drunk trying to forget the loss, but hadn't. Billy Blue Eye's death would be the only thing to save Jim.
