When Buddy Pecos approaches Hannah Scott and Pete Belissari about joining him in a stagecoach operation, it seems like a proposition that can't lose. So the three friends form their own company, along with stagecoach entrepreneur Dean Everhart, staionmaster David Goldman, and Happy Jack McBride, a blind former mustanger with a very peculiar talent.
Trouble strikes however, when Pete has to buy horses from Cash Hardee, a murderous scalphunter. Then beautiful gambler Jill Coffey starts a rival business, forcing a winniner-take-all stagecoach race from Fort Stockton to Presidio.
In a series of adventures that move like a runaway team, Hannah and the horseman suddenly have their hands full dealing with Coffey, who'll stop at nothing to win, and Hardee, who'll stop at nothing to see Pete dead.
