Saturday night for the town of Dunnigan, Wyoming in The Valley of Thunder is something to be dreaded. For months now hoorawing range men have been bursting into Dunnigan, bringing fear to its citizens. Now that Hugh Mitchell, the new town marshall, has come to Dunnigan, his job is to put an end to this chaos. But the problem is not simply the rowdy range men, but the owners of the ranches where they work. The Story of Buckhorn is the story of a ranch. The Buckhorn is owned by two brothers, opposites in all things. Gard Ashley is like steel in his determination to keep the Buckhorn the best cattle ranch in the Dakota Territory. Court Ashley, Gard's massive, truculent brother, sees Buckhorn's prestige and wealth as an excuse to dissipate and swagger. Elisa Benton, a dance-hall singer, loved by Court and intensely disliked by Gard, is able to see through them both. If anything, this tension is only increased when Court is murdered and robbed. Gard is bent on personal vengeance, but Elisa Benton seems only to want to protect the criminals from Gard's wrath.
