A young woman who is a quarter Native American Indian, Mary Thorne (Glaum), returns to the home of her prospector father, Marshall Thorne ( Joseph J. Dowling ), after completing her education in the East. She has a college degree and an air of refinement. Mary enjoys the freedom of her father's mountain cabin, while he is away hunting for gold at Lost Lake. When Mark Hamilton ( Lawson Butt) and Chester Martin ( Hayward Mack), two hunters show up and visit the cabin she decides to put on Indian clothing and pretend she is a full-blooded Indian princess for fun. Both men are attracted to the Indian maiden and Hamilton falls deeply in love with her. Martin, however, is scornful towards her Indian background. When Mary hears him making derisive remarks about the Indian race, she returns to her father's cabin. Martin follows her home, enters her bedroom, and attacks her. Hamilton comes to her rescue and prevents Martin from raping her. He then looks around the room and sees the modern decor. Realizing that Mary is a young woman of culture and education, he becomes angry because she fooled him and leaves. Meanwhile, while Mary's father is searching for gold, which legend has it is at the bottom of Lost Lake, a legend that also says a white man who once stole some of the gold killed an Indian prince and a white man's blood must fall before anymore gold can be taken, he is killed by an Indian guard at Lost Lake. Mary inherits the gold that her father discovered. Hamilton, who cannot forget her, comes back and they are married.
This 1918 silent drama was produced by Louise Glaum Organization & Robert Brunton Productions, starring popular silent screen actress, Louise Glaum. Sadly it now remains a lost silent film.
