Storyline

The cowboys belonging to the Crescent Bar outfit, while out looking for missing cattle, catch a gang of rustlers in the act of running off their employer's stock. Charley Morton, the foreman, immediately starts for the ranch to inform the ranch owner, and the cowboys pursue the fleeing cattle thieves. Jim Darrow, the ranch owner, is the father of three lovely girls, true daughters of the West, who are fond of hunting and all outdoor sports. They have just succeeded in obtaining their father's consent to go hunting, when the foreman arrives with his news. Charley warns his sweetheart, Bessie Darrow, that hunting in the hills is dangerous while the rustlers are about. He rides away with his employer to join the boys in running down the rustlers, and the girls are left alone. Clara and Ellen prepare to carry out their original intention to go into the hills and hunt deer, but Bessie, remembering her lover's warning, is more prudent and advises her sisters to stay home.

There is nothing novel in the framework of the story
4 May 2016 | by See all my reviews

This picture opens with a fine scene. Cows are feeding in the foreground, and beyond them sweeps one of those broad, billow-like hills of the prairie lands. Five rustlers ride over its crest and try to stampede the cattle, but are beaten off. There is nothing novel in the framework of the story. The three daughters of the ranch owner are in danger of being captured by the bandit rustlers and are saved by the cowboys. There is, however, novelty in many of the incidents and these are shown as in places that overlook a grand and interesting country. It is well acted, as is to be expected, and makes an interesting Western picture, worth seeing. - The Moving Picture World, October 28, 1911
