Storyline

Pedro loves Wana, the daughter of Buck Henshaw, the squaw-man.

Pedro is heart-broken as his poor little Indian sweetheart rides away, a sacrifice to her unnatural father's greed for money. Goaded to desperation by the sight of her misery, the poor Mexican boy follows for miles on foot until the town of San Gabriel is reached. Leaving Wana outside a saloon, the sheep buyer enters to refresh himself after his long ride. Pedro takes advantage of this opportunity to urge Wana to go with him to the Mission and there be married to him by the good Padre.

It is not a very exciting story, nor is it romantic
29 January 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

The artistic qualities of all recent Selig pictures that this reviewer has seen have been very marked; they have a delightful individual quality. "The Herders" is another of these pictures and does its producer credit. It is not a very exciting story, nor is it romantic. It depends for its interest on pictures of actual life on the sheep range, but as has been said of W.D. Howells's novels, it is good, but nothing happens in it yet the first four scenes of it alone would make it worth while, and it is all beautiful. The acting is good. In fact, Wanna's attitude when Pedro first finds her in the saloon is a highly commendable piece of work. - The Moving Picture World, June 3, 1911
