Storyline

When Mesquite, a young Indian girl, passed through the ranch, it was the signal for a number of inconsiderate young ranchmen to gather about and taunt her. She was therefore much relieved when Kid appeared on the scene, telling the men in no uncertain language what he thought of their conduct. There seemed to be a particularly rough element on the ranch at that time, for within a few days after befriending Mesquite, Kid was called upon to take the part of a young white woman who suffered insult at the hands of the rowdies. This time, however, Kid did not escape without a quarrel, in which he roundly punished the main offender, leaving him in an unconscious condition. Kid thought it well to "make himself scarce," until peace was restored and hurried away from the scene of trouble, pursued by the sheriff. Then it was that Mesquite displayed her gratitude.

An Indian love story, with an interesting background. In substance it tells how a white man defended an Indian girl from insult and she in return hid him when the sheriff was following him for being too vigorous in a punishment which he inflicted upon a rowdy. The fights arc savage enough, but there is a tender scene in the love making and the audience is ready to congratulate him when "Kid" leads the Indian girl home as his bride. The sudden reformation of the rough gang at the ranch is an incident which helps the story, since it enables the Kid to live with his Indian bride in peace. - The Moving Picture World, November 4, 1911
