Pulling her gun she demands of the rustlers to set the Indian free. Upon their doing so Red Cloud mounts his horse and rides away, vowing that some day he will repay the cowgirl for her brave act. The cattle rustlers, angry at being frustrated in their attempt to rob Red Cloud, swear to get revenge upon the cowgirl. Stealing her little daughter, they tie the child on the back of a horse and drive it at breakneck speed across the plains. One of the rustlers writes a note, tacking it to the side of the horse: "Miss Smarty, get your Indian friend to hunt for your brat, you will find her tied to the back of one of your bronchos, God knows where.

Redolent with the true plains spirit
14 March 2015 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A Western picture, breathing the rough life of the plains and developing a story of interest and power. The most thrilling scene is where the cattle rustlers fasten the child on the horse's back and send the beast careering over the plains. But the mother has befriended an Indian, rescuing him from this same gang of rustlers, and when she gives the alarm he is first to respond. Then come some wild riding, ending by the discovery of the horse bearing the child and his capture by the dextrous use of the lasso. It is thrilling and redolent with the true plains spirit. Photographically it is an improvement over some previous Bison work. - The Moving Picture World, March 19, 1910
