The tragic situation of the Red men who resent being pushed off the map
The usual bigness of the Bison 101 pictures will be found in this two- reel feature picture of the early West. The story deals with the tragic situation of the Red men who resent being pushed off the map by white settlers. It is set in a wild, desert mountain region. There is a hot battle between the Reds and the settlers and the United States cavalry comes to the rescue. In the battle, a young lieutenant, it being his first engagement, loses his nerve and runs away. He crawls back to the post in time to see his own funeral, for they think him dead. His young wife finds out the truth from his own lips. The young lieutenant soon has a chance to prove that he is not a coward and his courageous action brings the picture, with dramatic sweep and rush, over a thrilling climax. There is a sad, but beautiful final scene. It is a very satisfying picture, substantial, human and thrilling. It is well photographed. - The Moving Picture World, June 22, 1912
