By chance, Red Dust, a red-haired cowboy of Irish descent, ends up in the sleepy nest of Greenstone Falls in Wyoming. He is staying at the young farmer Comanche's Triple Six Ranch. Together with the quirky Ten Gallons, the colored Toby and the greenhorn Clem, he manages and defends his employer's property against Indians and cattle thieves. When Red Dust puts an end to a gang of criminals, he goes to jail. After his release, he moved further west to escape the approaching civilization. He later returns to Comanche and her ranch "666".
