Never give a saga an even break!

A town—where everyone seems to be named Johnson—stands in the way of the railroad. In order to grab their land, robber baron Hedley Lemar sends his henchmen to make life in the town unbearable. After the sheriff is killed, the town demands a new sheriff from the Governor, so Hedley convinces him to send the town the first black sheriff in the west.

Gli abitanti di Rock Ridges sono vessati da una coppia di arroganti amministratori: il giudice Hedley Lamarr e l'inetto e corrotto governatore William De Petomane. Il giudice, per speculare su alcuni terreni, non esita a modificare il tracciato della ferrovia. Ai soprusi però si oppone il nero Bart, il nuovo sceriffo, che con il suo inguaribile e contagioso ottimismo salva il paese.
