After Louie gives up a business venture because of a simple obstacle, Scrooge tells him a story of when he was a prospector in the Old West in the hopes of inspiring him to be just like him. While at a town called Gumption, he ran into Goldie and the two race for gold. However, their claim was stolen by John D. Rockerduck, who bought the town to con it. Scrooge and Goldie, along with Fenton’s sheriff ancestor and a time-traveling Gyro, teamed up to get the gold back. Though the gold was destroyed in the end, its pieces ended up in the river near Gumption, triggering a gold rush. After the story, Louie takes the wrong lesson from it and calls Goldie to learn her skills, despite knowing his uncle will be furious when he hears about this.
