Synopsis for "Ringo Kid"

As the Ringo Kid rides along the range, two men armed with a rifle take a shot at him. Hearing the shot, the Kid pretends to be struck and tumbles off his horse. The men search him and are angry to find that this wasn't the mail carrier they were looking for. The Ringo Kid suddenly springs to life and easily disarms the men, demanding they explain what is going on. The Kid is told that they were looking for the express delivery man, Sam Tilsen, who left the town of Elk Run without paying his gambling debt. Knowing that the men are lying but having no means of dealing with them, the Kid "accepts" their story and tells them to vamoose, but he still wonders what they were really after.

Meanwhile, in the town of Comanche Gap, the local sheriff is trying to quell a mob who demands the release of Jim Haggard who was found guilty of a crime they all think he is innocent of. However the sheriff is forced to abide by the law and tells those gathered that Haggard will have to pay the price for his guilty verdict. Watching this display is Lex Packard and one of his men, he hopes his two minions managed to stop the express agent to ensure that Jim is executed. Also among the crowd is the Ringo Kid who asks a local what happened. He learns that Jim Haggard was the owner of the town newspaper who was reporting on a feud between Lex and Ace Dawson over control of the gambling in town. Ace had threatened to silence Jim if he didn't stop but the newspaper man refused. One day Ace decided to confront Jim, and Jim stood his ground with a broken pistol. Despite this, Ace Dawson was shot dead before he could even draw his guns. The only witness to the shooting was Lex Packard who accused Haggard of killing Dawson in cold blood.

The Ringo Kid pays a visit to the sheriff to see the gun that Jim had, and learned that prior to the trial it went missing and resurfaced only after a verdict was given. Examining the gun, the Ringo Kid finds that it loading gate was broken and the firing pin was worn away, making it in capable of firing. The sheriff tells the Kid after he drew the same conclusion he wrote to the state governor and that his response should be coming that very day by pony express.

Not far away that very express driver is being chased by Lex Packard and his men. The express rider tries to keep away but his horse tumbles when it steps through a gopher hole sending the rider sprawling. Lex gets the papers out of the saddle bag that would exonerate Jim Haggard, but before he can destroy them the Ringo Kid and a posse arrive shooting to disarm Lex and his men and take them prisoner. With the report from the governor, Jim is found innocent of the crime and is released from jail.

Synopsis for "End of the Trail!"

The Ringo Kid is pursued by soldiers, of whom he does not wish to fight against. His flight is stopped when he's cornered in a canyon with nowhere to go. To his surprise the soldiers have come for his help, not to apprehend him. He is brought to Fort Sierra to meet with Colonel Pierce. There Pierce tells the Ringo Kid that the payroll for his soldiers have been hijacked near Black Butte for the past three months and he'd like to have the Ringo Kid stop whoever is doing it as his soldiers are becoming volatile and might abandon their posts if they are not paid by the next shipment. The Ringo Kid accepts the job and out on the range sends out a smoke signal calling for his father Cory Rand and his Comanche friend Dull Knife. They go to the scene of the crime where Dull Knife uses his tracking skills to find the exact spot where the train was robbed and the trail showing where the outlaws went.

Meanwhile, in the lawless town of Wolverine, Shotgun Blane and his men meet to discuss their plans. Despite his men's reservations with robbing the military, Shotgun is convinced that if they keep robbing government payrolls the soldiers will abandon their posts and they will have reign over the entire area. Suddenly erupts with excitement when the outlaws that live there spot the Ringo Kid and his compatriots being chased by the Calvary. This, of course, is a ruse set up by the Kid to play up on his reputation as an outlaw to gain Shotgun Blane's confidence. Appearing to escape capture, the Ringo Kid tough talks his way into a meeting with the outlaw's leader. The Kid convinces Shotgun that he knows when the next payroll train is passing through and only offers to reveal the location if Shotgun agrees to not only give him half of the money on board, but also half of the money that he has already stolen. Impressed by the Ringo Kid's abilities Shotgun Blane agrees.

The Ringo Kid, Cory Rand and Dull Knife lead them out to the train as it is passing through the region. While the gang heads out to rob it, Shotgun Blane tries to double cross them by drawing his guns. The Kid draws faster and shoots the guns out of his Shotgun's hands. The Kid then shows Blane that it was all a trap, as the train is filled with soldiers who capture the rest of his gang.

Synopsis for "Ringo Kid"

The Ringo Kid is on the run from a posse running to a dead end at a cliff high atop Spinner's Gorge. Unwilling to be captured, the Kid orders his horse Arab to dive into the raging river below, leaving the chasing lawmen to believe that the Kid drowned in the rapids. However the Kid and Arab survive and when they get to shore they continue to ride. They eventually get to a trail shack where the Kid can hopefully get some food and dry off.

Inside the Kid finds some beans and flour and begins cooking and drying his clothing. Suddenly he has a visitor named Landis who tells the Kid to clear out of his cabin and raises his guns. The Kid tries to cool the situation, but young Landis refuses to stand down, forcing the Kid to shoot the guns out of his hands. Seeing the young man is troubled, the Kid asks Landis to talk about it. Landis explains that his family is about to be thrown from their land so he decided to rob the Star Stagecoach of it's pay sack in order to get them the money they need to keep their land. The Ringo Kid begins to laugh, because the posse that was after him thought he had stolen the pay sack instead.

The Kid then becomes more sombre, convincing Landis to return the pay sack, as the lock on it has not been broken. Convincing him that the sheriff is an honest sort and that Landis would not like the life of an outlaw constantly being hunted for his entire life. Deciding to do what is right, Landis agrees and the two ride into town the next day. There they pay a visit to the sheriffs office where the Ringo Kid convinces the sheriff that he and Landis recovered the pay sack and that its contents are accounted for. Unlocking the bag, the sheriff points out that it was not money in the sack, but land grants for all the locals in the area, including one that is titled to Landis' parents, giving them full ownership of their land.
