Storyline

The old prospector dies and leaves his daughter alone in the uninhabited hills. Two other prospectors come, a young man and an older one. They meet the girl and the inevitable happens; they love her, the young man with a poor and noble love, the old man with the black primitive passion of desire. The older one tries to accomplish his purpose through treachery and cowardice, but he only meets a just death, while the manly youth and the courageous girl move on to the life of love and happiness.

Not very novel in plot
9 December 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A pretty Western story in which two prospectors love the same girl. She prefers one and is forced to defend herself with a gun from the other. The picture is not very novel in plot but is finely photographed, sincerely acted and contains many attractive Western scenes. Its leisurely development gives strength to the story. - The Moving Picture World, August 1, 1914
