Buck rides the same trail again, but takes longer this time.

This 1941 Buck Jones serial was a remake of Jones' 1932 feature western of the same title. It was the 13th Columbia serial.

The plot is the same as Fred Myton's 1932 original-feature story, expanded from 62 minutes to 290 minutes, wherein White Eagle (Buck Jones)is the son of a massacred army officer, who has been raised by an Indian tribe and believes himself to be the son of the tribal chief. White Eagle is working to get a peace treaty signed between the Indians and the white settlers, but "Dandy" Darnell (James Craven), in one of the "greatest" over-the-top, scenery-chewing performances even lensed, has about a dozen different reasons for the treaty not to be signed, and keeps dispatching a small army of henchmen to keep relations between the Indians and the settlers stirred to a boiling point for most of the fifteen chapters.
