Summary:  Joe Cartwright is travelling back to Virginia City when the stage coach is attacked by renegade Indians not far from home.  All other passengers are killed, and Joe is badly wounded, but before the Lieutenant aboard dies, he tells Joe the secret hiding place of a shipment of hidden gold.

An opportunistic man coming across the stricken stage and passengers, realises that Joe knows the location.  Playing the part of the good samaritan, he brings Joe back to Virginia City and to his family, hoping to befriend the boy if he recovers to tell him where the gold is.

When it is clear that Joe won’t be telling him any of the clues, the man takes Joe by force, before he is fully recovered.  The two of them go on a hellish ride with Joe’s family trying to keep up and rescue him before they reach the location.
