The sole survivor of an Indian massacre, a baby called Jack Trail, is raised in the shadow of an overhanging eagle's nest by the Silsbees, two immigrants. Meanwhile, Geoffrey Milford, the partner of Jack's deceased father, forges his signature to use money from his property. Years later, Milford's partner, Robert Blasedon, desiring to marry Milford's daughter Rose, who rejected him, seeks to recover the papers and force the marriage. After Jack saves the Milfords and Blasedon from a runaway coach, Mrs. Silsbee, while trying to protect Rose from Blasedon, is killed in a scuffle. Accused of the murder, Jack, who now loves Rose, saves her from Blasedon, but Rose marries Blasedon when he threatens to kill Jack. After Blasedon steals the forged papers, Jack pursues him through the mountains until their struggle ends in Blasedon's fall into a ravine. When Milford learns of Jack's origin, he offers the papers, which Jack declines, saying that Rose is all the wealth he wants.
