When Jess Harper saves a young, crippled Blackfoot boy from a scalp hunter he involves himself, Slim Sherman, Daisy Cooper and Mike in a whole mess of trouble. Defying an Army edict for helping the Blackfoot lands Jess in hot water. The boy, Lame Wolf, would see them all dead except for the hope of fixing the lameness that has turned his own father against him. The scalp hunter, having had the boy taken from him twice, would see Jess' scalp numbered among his trophies. When a sympathetic Army surgeon fixes the boy's leg, it opens up an opportunity to make peace with the Blackfoot. The scalp hunter has other ideas which drives the boy, with Mike, into the hills to search for his father and prove that he is his father's son. With the scalp hunter following behind it's up to Jess stop him before anyone gets hurt.
