A pretty young woman arrives in Medicine Bow and finagles a job at the Banner newspaper. In order to gain a reputation as a reporter, Miss Samantha Fry (writing as Colonel Sam Fry), writes a series of articles about a chance-heard person, presumed dead: The Brazos Kid. She has been fired many times back east for more than exaggerating the truth In her reporting. Samantha, despite repeated warnings from various people, including The Virginian, insists upon writing more suggestive, inflammatory stories until an inference of hers turns attention on The Virginian. Bounty hunters show up in Medicine Bow putting his life in danger. Although The Virginian denies being the Brazos Kid, he has a secret he can't reveal that would clear his name but harm a friend and his family.
