Within five years, Cory Rand had a successful ranch with loyal workers and was a welcomed brother among the Comanche people. However, one day he was approached by his neighbor, a man named Shad Rathburn, who offered to buy Rand's land.

The boy had a crack shot and one day while shooting bottle and chortling over the ringing sound the bottles made when they were blasted the lad earned the name "Ringo Kid". Kept away from the people in town, the Ringo Kid grew to wonder why he could not go to school with the other children in town, Cory would not tell his son that his mix nationality would set him apart from the others.

One day the young man's curiosity got the better of him and he rode into town where he found that the children did not like him for his mixed heritage. This soon erupted into a full on brawl with the Ringo Kid having the advantage. Happening upon the scene was Shad Rathburn who decided to get back at Cory Rand through his son and began whipping the boy. Arriving on the scene Cory Rand came to his son's aid and shot Shad death. Now an outlaw, Rand told his son to go to his mother while he went into hiding, giving the boy his guns. Cory then rode back to his family home to say goodbye to his wife and found the house in blazes. Rushing inside, Cory was too late to save Dawn Star who died in his arms.

As Cory left the blazing inferno that was once his perfect home, Cory was confronted by a lynch mob who set the blaze and sought to hang him for killing Rathburn. Rand was then strung up, but before the mob could hang him, the Ringo Kid charged on the scene with guns blazing. He mowed down all those who were about to hang his father, killing them all in cold blood. In the aftermath, both realized that as outlaws they had better chances of staying free by going their separate ways, and soon parted company.. Thus the legend of the Ringo Kid was born.
