When Admire is killed for his Strip claim, Lucy, grieving, leases the land to his cowboy friends and returns to Paragon Springs and gets by on her tidy farm.
In 1910, an eccentric new neighbor, Tom Reilly, begins building a new-fangled "aeroplane" in his barn. Lucy is convinced that he is onto something that could help her town and is determined to build an aeroplane plant with oil money she has come into from her Oklahoma land.
Together, they face ridicule from friends and family, go to air shows and learn from other aviation pioneers, and deal with the shallow aviatrix Sophie, in order to find a way to lay out plans for Paragon Spring's future.
