Storyline

The two brothers and the little adopted daughter of the household grew up from childhood together. The girl and the younger brother were childhood sweethearts, he being so different in nature from his elder brother, who was considered the bad man and dead shot of the hills. The younger brother has been living in the valley for a long time and returns to his home at the time the story opens. He is quite a contrast to his elder brother, in fact to the whole family, refined, educated, and, of course, a revelation to the little girl, who, though betrothed to the elder brother, is strongly attracted by him. Hence there is a renewal of childhood affection. This the elder brother ferociously objects to, making it understood that the girl is engaged to him, so the younger boy, for the sake of peace, decides to leave the place. However, fate decrees it otherwise, for an old feud is reawakened and he joins his brother to tight the common enemy. This incident reverses conditions. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

The action becomes like a whirlwind
19 February 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

An unusually tense picture, even for a Biograph. In it, after a few scenes that introduce excellently suggested types of mountaineers and give a few glimpses of mountain life, the action becomes like a whirlwind. It is a one act picture of the almost complete annihilation of a mountain family. A love story softens it some; but it is a hard picture, almost brutal. It is for those who like their pictures fiery. It will surely please the gallery and also, we think, many who arc not in the gallery; but, while we feel sure it will be a success, we cannot commend it wholly; it is likely to offend very sensitive minds, because it is a blood-thirsty picture. - The Moving Picture World, October 19, 1912
