Sammy Gregg was born in Brooklyn, small in stature and naive to the ways of the world, but headstrong and resolute to save enough money to marry Susie Mitchell. Gregg calculated that he needed $15,000 and figured he could earn enough in six months out West. Although he was a small man who knew nothing of fighting, guns, or horses, he took the $5,000 he had already saved and headed out West, arriving in Munson - a tough lawless town. With his unwavering determination, Gregg finds a few good-paying jobs, but every time he runs up against Chester Furness, a fellow newcomer to Munson. But unlike Gregg, Furness runs a gang that steals horses, robs stagecoaches, and makes life hard for Sammy Gregg. To make good on his word and return to New York with enough savings to start a new life with Susie, Gregg will have to face off against Furness, put an end to his raids, and rid Munson of his gang of outlaws for good. But some things are easier said than done
