Jees Uck ( Nancy Deaver ), a half-breed maiden desired by Chatanna ( Nick Thompson ), chief of the tribe with which she lives, defies tribal law by getting medicine from the trading post for the sick child of her friend, Inigo ( Myrtle Morse ). Nashinta ( Mortimer Snow ), the medicine man, defends her against the chief. Chatanna kills Nashinta and puts the blame on Jees Uck, who flees into the arms of Neil Bonner ( Sazon Kling ), trading post manager, who loves her. The post is attacked, but Jees Uck surrenders to save her white friends. Neil finds evidence against the chief, delivers him to the authorities, and marries Jees Uck.
This 1922 silent drama/romance was based on the short story "The Story of Jees Uck" by Jack London, and produced by P.T.B., Incorporated. The survival status of The Mohican's Daughter is listed as unknown, sadly suggesting it may now be a lost silent film.
