In The Texican by Dane Coolidge, Pecos Dalhart, is just looking for some work in Arizona when he finds a freelance cattle rustling job. Things go bad very quickly for the young cowboy after he gets caught in the middle of a feud between the two biggest cattlemen in Geronimo County. Pecos is falsely accused of cattle theft by one of the cattlemen, Ike Crittendon, and promptly thrown in jail by sheriff Boone Morgan. Pecos becomes inspired by an article in the anti-capitalist newspaper "The Voice of Reason" while awaiting trial and soon begins to turn the tables on on both the rich cattlemen and the corrupt legal system that serves them. With the help of his friend Angevine "Babe" Thorne, a supportive local journalist and the beautiful Marcelina, Pecos orchestrates a turnabout no one could have anticipated!
