A fearsome daredevil Calumet Marston returns to his father's ranch known as the Lazy Y. He finds out that his father has died and that he left Betty Clayton in charge of a ranch, a young woman he took in. He also left a testimony which states that Calumet must give a practical demonstration of reform in character if he wants to inherit his father's money, and Betty is the one to be the judge of that. Charles Alden Seltzer (1875-1942) was a prolific American author of western novels. He wrote his westerns from the experience of living on his uncle's ranch in New Mexico. Seltzer's best works include The Two-Gun Man, The Boss of the Lazy Y, Drag Harlan and West. Many of his novels were turned into Hollywood movies.
