Daniel Jennifer and Dick Hathaway were the original settlers of the exquisite land in California's giant redwood forest on which the Madrone Ranch stood. It was Hathaway money that built it, and, now that Dick had been dead for over fifty years, it was Andrew Hathaway who was about to sell it to Jet Norcross, though it meant that his own sister and old Daniel Jennifer would have to leave their home. Norcross had been plotting for that spread for a very long time -- and, once he found the gold that Daniel had spent a lifetime searching for, nothing would stop him from acquiring the Hathaway property. And just as Jet Norcross and his mean-spirited, spoiled daughter are about to take possession of the Madrone, in walks Jim Glennister, Jet's old gambling partner and the man he'd left with a bullet in him while he cheated him out of his share. Glennister beat Norcross at his own game, and now the Madrone was his. But Jet Norcross wasn't going down without a fight

Young Jefferson Morgan didn't talk much, but word got around that he was looking for something -- or someone. They had killed his friend, and Jefferson Morgan knew exactly who they were. A murderous crew, Bud Briscoe and his gang galloped through the Southwest as if they owned it. And now they were pushing on further west. They didn't stop anywhere for very long -- just long enough to brawl, to laugh at their own cruel antics, to sing their raucous songs, and to raise what they called Merry Hell. They killed his friend -- partly for the forty dollars he had on him, but mostly for fun. And now young Jefferson Morgan followed their tracks westward

Bill Dorn is on the trail of Mike Bundy, his former associate who has swindled Dorn and several of his friends in a fraudulent oil scheme. He's incensed, in part because he was robbed, but mostly because he'd vouched for Bundy. On his way to Nacional to confront Bundy, Dorn comes across the body of Jake Fanning, who was grubstaked by Bundy -- and from the nuggets found on his body, it looks like he had hit pay-dirt. After taking the body back to his ranch and calling the sheriff, Dorn heads back out after Bundy. But the killing continues, and things are hardly ever what they seem, as Dorn and Bundy get mixed up with some wily women and have one confrontation after another. Their final confrontation ends with Dorn telling an angry mob, "by rights he belongs to me, because I nailed him, but I don't want him and you can do as you think best."

Professor James Edward Longstreet, retired university geologist, and his more practical daughter, Helen, have the courage, brains, and determination to find gold and silver when they arrive in the Southwest desert - but they are inexperienced in field work and the deceptive ways of greedy men. They find both gold and a mystery, a hastily abandoned campsite marked by a stick with a bluejay feather on it, supper burning on the fire, and the tracks of a huge dog. Rancher Alan Howard invites them to his Desert Valley oasis, and on the way they pass one of their host's beef cattle butchered, with a poke of gold beside it. The Professor files his claim, but falls victim to a claim-jumping scam.
