The Ringo Kid and his saddle partner, Tumbleweed, were looking for an easy way to spend the winter. They thought they had found the perfect situation when they saw the ad seeking a sheriff for the East Texas town of Nacogdoches. Pretending to be a gunfighting sheriff from Arizona, the Kid gets the job, but he didn't count on "Boss" Kilgore, who ran the town with an iron fist and didn't want the law messing up his plans! The Kid finds himself facing real gunmen imported by "Boss" Kilgore, in a town hotly divided by ethnicity and the mysterious White Knights of the Camellia. The Ringo Kid comes to realize that he might be able to make a difference in Nacogdoches-if he can only live long enough!
