Porky Pig travels by horse-pulled, covered wagon to California to join in the 1848 Gold Rush. He is ambushed by a diminutive, large-nosed, nasal-voiced, ever-so-polite Mohican with glasses, who wants to scalp the westbound pig. Porky manages to elude the little Indian by ducking at appropriate times, donning a metal helmet, speedily horse-riding and canoeing. The Indian becomes caught in a salmon net and canned in a factory. Porky arrives in California, to find the only gold that he can extract from a mine is the golden tooth belonging to the Indian.
