A lively horse opera that benefits more from the extensive footage of thundering hooves than from the wooden performances of the leads. Starrett doesn't put much effort into his law officer role as he helps postmistress Keith round up a gang of bandits that has been preying on her mail

runs. Their real object is to get the lovely lady to sell her land, which is adjacent to villain Keane's mined-out gold diggings (she promised her late father she wouldn't sell). The plot line has vagrant mule skinner Starrett as an undercover agent for--ready for this?--the FBI during pioneer
