Synopsis

Heading to Red Butte, Steve Jarrett sees buzzards circling and finds four men dead. Sole survivor Tom accuses Jefford's Bar.Z outfit, which has been terrorising local ranchers. The Ghost Rider investigates and finds Bob Prentiss has sought revenge and been captured by Jefford. Ghost Rider rescues Prentiss, which inspires the townsfolk to attack Jefford, who hires a famous gunman from Lincoln County, Billy the Kid, to kill Ghost Rider. The townsfolk beat Jefford's gang while Ghost Rider humiliates Billy the Kid and sends him on his way "to be shot dead, shortly afterwards, by Sheriff Pat Garrett at Fort Sumner".
