Business aint easy when the locals stand to lose it all.
Molly conceived a resentment against the rich cattleman who could impose such restrictions and embitter the lives of poor people. And as for Trafts tenderfoot nephew, who had come out of Missouri to run a hard outfit and build barbed-wire fences, Molly certainly hated him.”
Although he doesnt know cattle or cowboys, Missourian Jim Traft finds himself as the foreman of a tough Arizona outfit tasked with fencing a hundred miles of open cattle range. Brought on by his wealthy uncle, he faces this difficult trial with youthful aplomb.
But Traft faces a community that stands to suffer because of this new drift fence, and he must walk a fine line in order to honor his uncles business while not incurring the wrath of longtime residents. The Drift Fence shows how this tender young man struggles to overcome the odds he faces and ultimately wins over the heart of the beautiful young lass Molly Dunn.
