Storyline

Jack Read, born in the east, but raised in the west, receives word that his brother "Dan," still in the East, is in need of aid. He sends money for him to come west. Dan arrives, dilapidated, and soon tires of the employment which his brother has secured for him. He gets the gold fever and starts for Mexico. Jack, loath to give up trying to save his brother, goes with him. They discover in their wanderings an old miner who is dying. He gives the boys a chart of a mine he has located, and with his dying breath asks them to send for Mary, his niece, and mine the gold in her name. Jack sends for the girl and they start for the old miner's desert claim. Both men fall in love with the girl. After many thrilling experiences they become lost in the midst of the desert, without food and dying for lack of water.

Not very convincing nor gripping
23 July 2016 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A Western story that is well acted and very interesting. It is a melodrama, not very convincing nor gripping, yet with good pictures of wild life, such as a thirsty trip across the desert in the search of a gold mine in an oasis. The two men were brothers, one a courageous, sterling character, the other an avaricious cowardly sneak. The girl was the granddaughter of an old miner whom the brothers had found dying in the desert. He told them of the mine and granddaughter, and asked them to look out for both. They get the girl and, with a good equipment, start out across the desert. After much hardship, they start back with rich ore. The question now is, who is going to marry the girl? The spectator wants the good man to win, but it looks as though the coward was to be the lucky one. The old miner's ghost appears and decides for the good man. It is not surely a feature picture, but will serve as a good filler. - The Moving Picture World, January 20, 1912
