Eighteen today, the deputy grows as a determined lawman. Tom Hixson, the hired hand who shot the boy, grows as the meatpackers muscle. The close of World War I ends the monopoly, and he company cleans up Hixson and his mess with a series of accidents. Returning home from a picnic prescribed by his father, his mother hands him the family star. . Sheriff Simms pins on his star and rushes his fathers funeral to take on the task of leading his countys battle with the Spanish flu. The pioneers die, leaving children with the frontier spirit to handle bad things as they arise. He leads the hardest hit community in the third hardest hit state in the union to a calm and certain victory over the flu.
