Texas Ranger Dusty Rivers (Gary Cooper) is sent to Canada during the 1880s in pursuit of outlaw Jacques Corbeau (George Bancroft), arriving in the midst of the Riel Rebellion (1885). Dusty meets nurse April Logan (Madeleine Carroll) and is attracted to her, causing rivalry with another suitor, Canadian Mountie Sergeant Jim Brett (Preston Foster).

Meanwhile, April's brother, Mountie Ronnie Logan (Robert Preston), is madly in love with Corbeau's daughter, Louvette (Paulette Goddard), feelings which are fully reciprocated, despite them being on opposite sides.

Louvette learns that the rebels plan to attack a lookout post manned by Ronnie and then ambush a Mounties column which is trying to seize an abandoned store of ammunition which would be invaluable to the rebels. By crushing the column, the rebels will demonstrate to wavering Indian forces that the rebellion is worth joining. To keep Ronnie safely out of the ambush, of which he is unaware, Louvette persuades him to leave his post for an hour, and then has him confined by Indians. Dusty helps the Mounties to mount a rearguard action against the ambushers. Sergeant Jim then leads a small detachment from the fort to the Indian camp where he persuades them to allow him to arrest Corbeau. Dusty tracks down Louvette's hideout and convinces Ronnie to surrender to face a desertion charge, but Ronnie is killed in a case of mistaken identity.

Afterwards, Dusty accepts April’s decision to stay with Jim and returns to Texas.
