A young Mexican girl at the ranch is pregnant with Alex's child, and there seems no place for Joanna on the entire spread. The dream empire is further threatened by rising railroad cattle fees, and Joanna proposes an overland drive into San Diego. The route crosses the Colorado River and the Mojave Desert, and Joanna's determination proves her the equal of the men on the wild and rugged journey.
