Storyline

Deerslayer, a white man who was brought up by the Mohicans, helps his old tribe when the Hurons steal Princess Wah Tah, the betrothed of his friend Jingo-Good. His friends, the Hutters, are a white family living on an ark in the middle of a lake. The Hurons attack them and Deerslayer enlists the aid of scout Harry March, who is escorting sixty-five brides to the near-by settlement. Deerslayer and Harry are both in love with Judith Hutter, who is secretly in love with Harry. The Hurons succeed in capturing her father and Harry, where-upon Judith's sister Hetty, playing on an Indian superstition never to harm an insane person, feigns madness and makes an escape. Hutter, Judith, Hetty and Princess Wah-Tah return to the ark, where they ate attacked by the waiting Hurons and Hetty is killed. Deerslayer, Harry and the settlement men arrive to time to drive the Hurons away. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

His friends, the Hutters, are a white family living on an ark in the middle of a lake. The Hurons attack them and Deerslayer enlists the aid of scout Harry March (Warren Ashe), who is escorting sixty-five brides to the near-by settlement. Deerslayer and Harry are both in love with Judith Hutter (Jean Parker), who is secretly in love with Harry.

The Hurons succeed in capturing her father (Addison Richards) and Harry, where-upon Judith's sister Hetty (Wanda McKay), playing on an Indian superstition never to harm an insane person, feigns madness and makes an escape.

Hutter, Judith, Hetty and Princess Wah-Tah return to the ark, where they ate attacked by the waiting Hurons and Hetty is killed. Deerslayer, Harry and the settlement men arrive to time to drive the Hurons away.

An independent production, by E. R. Derr, intended for distribution by Producers Releasing Corporation, but Republic Pictures, in need of additional product to met their exhibitor contracts, bought the finished film to distribute through their own exchanges.
