Virginia City sprang up practically over night when gold, then silver was found in what became known as the Comstock Lode. Ben has little to do with mining. He respects the land and will do nothing that can't be easily replaced. The mine owners need millions of feet of timber to dig deeper and deeper for the ore and Ben won't sell. He has thousands of acres of Ponderosa Pine, but believes too much logging will ruin the land. The mine owners hire renowned actress Lotta Crabtree to lure one of the Cartwright boys into town where he can be held hostage until Ben agrees to sell them lumber.The Cartwrights spot a carriage barreling across the Ponderosa and follow after it to investigate. The carriage has lost a wheel and come to a halt. The boys pull guns on the driver and demand to know what he's doing on their land. A beautiful woman, Lotta Crabtree, steps out of the carriage and refuses to cower. She orders them to put their guns away. Lotta Crabtree is hired by mining tycoon Alpheus Troy to lure one of the Cartwrights into town and hold him for ransom in exchange for Ponderosa timber rights.
