Storyline

After a vain search for fortune in the depths of the earth, a prospector comes upon an Indian arrowmaker, who is about to conceal a quantity of gold which he has mined. The temptation is too great for the unlucky prospector and he follows the arrowmaker to a cave, kills him, and starts across the Colorado desert with the ill-gotten gold. The arrowmaker's daughter finds her father's body and a clue to the murderer. She takes up the trail and in turn is followed by her Indian lover, who assumes that she is in love with the white man. The prospector and the girl are soon in agony because of a lack of water, but little by little the girl overtakes him, and, exhausted, they can go no farther. The Indian, with a supply of water, arrives in time to resuscitate the girl. The murderer proffers them the gold for a sip of water, but the offer is spurned, and together they watch him die.

Beautiful photography adds much to the picture first and last
15 January 2017 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A relentlessly tragic picture of the thirsty lands. In it Pearl White plays an Indian girl who doggedly follows the trail of a white gold seeker (Paul Panzer) who had killed her father, the arrow maker, for a hoard of nuggets. She follows him out into the desert and neither have water. The girl is followed by a chief, her lover, who finds her just in time. She has come up with the white thief. The two Indians, together, stand by and watch him in his death struggle. Beautiful photography adds much to the picture first and last. There are fine views of a rocky land where the gold was found and of a cave where the murder took place. There is a girl daughter of the old master, who loves the picture, well acted; it makes a good offering. - The Moving Picture World, August 24, 1912
