It's Spring of 1876, Centennial year in Old Los Angeles; and Deputy Cal MacLamond has unfinished business with hired guns and a dangerous young woman, in the Mojave Desert's still-wild Antelope Valley.
When an old prospector is murdered near the Fort Tejon stage station, Deputy Cal MacLamond decides to track down the killers and treat them to his own brand of California justice. Along the trail he meets up with a young rancher's wife, whose romantic notions are as dangerous as the outlaws' six-guns.
