Storyline

Richard Mead was a sheepherder who lived with his daughter in a hut in the mountains. He was hated by the cattlemen and was ordered to quit the range. Returning to his home he tells his daughter what has happened, and prepares to protect himself. The cattleman orders two men to go to his hut and put him out of the way. In the battle that follows the sheepman is wounded and one of the cowboys killed. The surviving one returns to town for assistance and the sheepman secrets himself in the mountains. On the arrival of the posse they find the sheepman gone and force his daughter to leave also. She arrives in town to be scorned by the women and jeered by the men. The new parson hears the insulting remarks and befriends her, offering her a home with his mother.

The story will be new to a majority of those who will see it
8 February 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

Here is a film that reproduces graphically the feud between the cattlemen and the sheepmen on the western ranges. This is a sheepman's story and against the cattlemen. Perhaps the novels that have dealt with this subject have mostly looked at it from the opposite side. It's well to see both sides of any question. The novelty in this picture is the minister who befriends the girl, overhears the plot of the cattlemen to find her father and murder him. The minister and the girl make a thrilling ride to sheepman's refuge and arrive in time to save him. At the muzzle of his gun the minister preaches the cattlemen a sermon that saves the sheepman's life. Perhaps it is unnecessary to add that he gets a wife. The setting is interesting and the story will be new to a majority of those who will see it. - The Moving Picture World, June 17, 1911
