Storyline

Each year the unique surroundings and novel characters of this great and typical American custom is becoming more and more obsolete and in a few short years entirely extinct. Can you imagine a more exciting or sensational picture than a great cattle stampede, curbed by fearless cowboys and dauntless riders of the western range horse? The roping and throwing of the longhorns, the invasion of the camp by the notable redskins, an ensemble picture of unusual merit, carrying with it a theme of love, hatred and revenge, making a picture so true to nature, simple in plot and construction that its advent will be a feature on any program. Two sisters own a large western ranch. Mary, the elder, is in love with Tom Mix, the County Sheriff, and the foreman of the ranch is displeased with her attentions to him and his actions make it necessary to discharge him; he then becomes a cattle rustler and arch enemy of the Sheriff. A raid is made on the ranch one night and a number are wounded. The ... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

In a few years all these will have disappeared forever
24 June 2015 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

The motion picture film is performing one important artistic public service. It is putting in imperishable form reproductions of the wild riders of the plains, the picturesque cowboy and the treacherous Indian. In a few years all these will have disappeared forever. But reproduced by the camera their reproductions can be called into being upon the screen centuries in the future. Selig has been more than ordinarily successful in his representation of these scenes. This picture contains ail the elements which go to make up a thrilling film. The cowboy, the cattle rustler, the cattle themselves—yes, there they are, quite as they looked to the writer the last time he came up over the old Sante Fe trail, and the great herd stampeded in a thunder storm which was awful in its manifestations, and for three days they were scattered over the prairies. Shortly afterward the trail was abandoned for the more rapidly moving train. This picture brought it all back, and aroused a flood of memories which obscured the years and carried one back among the clashing horns and the thundering herds of the broad prairies. The writer wishes personally to compliment Selig upon the excellence and value of these reproductions. It is the most graphic and beneficial of all ways to write history. - The Moving Picture World, June 25, 1910
