It is all very interesting
3 June 2018 | by See all my reviews

This picture play depicts the method the Indians follow in disposing of their dead and the plot involves the desecration of one of their cemeteries by ignorant emigrants who are driving over the plains to the West. By this unintentional act they incur the vengeance of the Indians. A love story is woven in; a romance of an army post. It is all very interesting and void of suggestiveness. The "Hero." branded as a coward, wins out. The battle in the stockade is lacking in detail and action somewhat. The acting is fairly done. - The Moving Picture World, March 14, 1914
