Coley Claybourne, who has always thought his mother abandoned him and his father, thinks she is only after the gold mine he inherited when she recently returned to Virginia City.


Margaret Claybourne returns to Virginia City after having abandoned her son years earlier. When 14-year-old Coley inherits his father's valuable mine, suddenly his mother and a greedy uncle are back fighting for custody of the young man. Coley detests each of the adults equally.
