It is a big, stirring, well-made picture
15 October 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A big feature release in two reels. The deserter is a second lieutenant, who, rejected by the colonel's daughter and disgraced by his part in a drunken row, leaves the post in civilian clothes. It is in early frontier days and an Indian uprising is imminent. A party of immigrants find him half dead in the desert and care for him. The savages attack the little band. The deserter risks his life to break through the "circle of death," and get help from the fort. He arrives in time, but dies and is buried with honors. It is a big, stirring, well-made picture, almost as good as "War on the Plains." It is a more emotional picture than any other of the big 101 releases. - The Moving Picture World, March 30, 1912
