Storyline

Mrs. Cloud's Shoshone husband passes away and as a white woman by law she is forced to leave their reservation. Her son Wolf and her are found near Shiloh by The Virginain and Jim Horn with her suffering from the same disease that killed her husband. They take her to Shiloh where she recovers. Her son Wolf raised in the Shoshone life style finds he must adapt to the white lifestyle when he gets into trouble stealing horses as a gift to Shiloh. She discovers that her first husband is a successful store owner in Medicine Bow living with their daughter Laurie who has become engaged. Mrs. Cloud was told Laurie was dead by the Shoshones. When she confronts her husband, he asks her to not reveal the truth to Laurie about him abandoning them during the Indian raid. She learns that many of the residents of Medicine Bow are still hostile to the Shoshone as well as her and her son forcing her to decide their future. Written by Anonymous

Soapy story slides into banality on a surface of convenient coincidences. Bethel Leslie is quite good though as an exhausted woman, worn down by years of drudgery on an Indian reservation, who doesn't relish the difficult task of re-adjusting to white society. Western fans will be intrigued by a rare, late-career appearance by former prolific cowboy star Tim Holt, who'd hung up his spurs with the death of the B-western in the fifties. Holt, in his prime, had found time for roles in classic films of John Ford, Orson Welles and John Huston, and he's perfectly acceptable here as a rancher more than a little irrational where Indians are concerned.
