Bruce Campbell Wetheral has apparently no future, but suddenly finds himself the sole beneficiary under his grandfather's will. Stuart Campbell had been an aggressive and obstinate old man convinced that oil could be found in the Rocky Mountains. Now his grandson decides to take up the challenge. But time is against him -- the time to live, the time to vindicate his grandfather's obsession, and time to save the land itself from impending disaster.
