Trama: Trovatosi senza cowboy disponibili per trasferire la sua mandria fino a Belle Fourche, l'attempato cowboy Wil Andersen deve ricorrere a ragazzini non più grandi di quindici anni prelevati da una scuola. All'improvvisata compagnia si aggiunge Jedediah Nightlinger, un cuoco di colore. Abbandonata la fattoria di Andersen, durante il tragitto nascono i primi problemi legati all'inesperienza del gruppo, ma il vecchio capomandria riesce sempre a riportare la situazione sotto controllo. La situazione degenera nel momento in cui Andersen e i ragazzi si accorgono di essere inseguiti dalla banda di Long Hair, un galeotto che in precedenza aveva cercato di farsi assumere come cowboy dallo stesso Andersen: Long Hair minaccia dapprima uno dei ragazzi del gruppo, poi esce allo scoperto per impossessarsi della mandria. Affrontato da Andersen, Long Hair pare riportare la peggio, ma il fuorilegge colpisce il suo avversario a bruciapelo, ferendolo mortalmente. Riordinate le idee, i ragazzi intendono recuperare il bestiame rubato e si mettono sulle tracce del bandito. Una volta raggiunto il fuorilegge, lo affrontano, riuscendo a sgominare tutta la banda e a portare il bestiame nella cittadina di Belle Fourche, proprio come avrebbe fatto Wil Andersen se fosse stato ancora vivo
