Place of Publication
There's silver in them thar hills, but landowner Trillby Sterling doesn't know it. She's only concerned about digging a new well in her cow pasture as she waits for her true love, Tom, to return with the cows. Meanwhile, a stranger in town shows an unusual interest in her pasture. Humboldt Bilgewater Foggerty says he's with the government. He also claims that Trillby's land is no good for cows and must be deeded over to the government. (That is, to him.) General store owner Annie Sue, her silent partner Espy, and the Simpson sisters who like to stir things up with their gossip, all want to help Trillby, but find themselves shoved aside. It take another stranger (who mysteriously looks just like Tom!) to save the day in a potentially explosive ending.
