Over the years Mase Campbell earned almost a legendary reputation as a wagon master, heading up freight wagon trains for Kavanaugh Freight. One night in 1874 in Corinne, Utah Territory, as he was returning home, he was stopped in the street by someone asking him for a match, and shot to death. Those who saw the murder either do not come forward or admit no knowledge.Buck McCready, who was captured at ten years of age by Indians, had been rescued by Mase and raised by him, working now for Kavanaugh Freight. Buck wants to find out the truth, but a possible witness, a prostitute, is murdered before his eyes, and the killer gets away in the dark. There is no time for further investigation because Jock Kavanaugh, owner of the freight line, has committed to a freight wagon race from Corinne to Virginia City in Montana Territory on behalf of the Bannock Mining Company. As far as Jock is concerned, Buck is the only one who can do the job and win. Buck believes that Mase was murdered because of the competition and that his murderer will probably be on the train.
