As he flees the Two-Gun Kid crosses paths with an outlaw named Ben Pardee. Ben tells the Kid that the men who ran him off were local ranchers who who bought land in the valley from the government. They are currently in dispute with King Cossard a local cattle king who decided to claim the entire valley for himself, causing trouble for the small time ranchers whenever he could. The ranchers then put up the barbed wire fence but King Cossard can form an entire army. Ben has been helping the ranchers by going outlaw and raiding Cossard's herds.
