In this tale of the Canadian Northwest, Harry Carey plays Cheyenne Harry, who is on the lam after getting tangled up with some cattle rustlers. He hides out at an Indian camp, where he encounters a lovely young Native-American maiden (Neola May). But along comes half-breed whiskey runner Black Michael (Joe Harris). He kills another Indian in a fit of jealousy over the girl, and tries to pin the crime on Cheyenne Harry. Harry just barely escapes the Canadian Mounted Police and lands at a store of the Hudson Bay Company. Black Michael has arrived there and is making moves on the manager's daughter, Kate (Neva Gerber). But Kate finds Harry much more to her liking, so Michael kidnaps her. Harry follows, and a brutal fight erupts between the two men. Ultimately, Michael falls off the cliff, but before he meets his demise, he confesses to the murder he accused Harry of doing. The film ends with Kate and Harry together. Since this picture was one of John Ford's early directorial efforts, there's lots of action to be had, along with Carey's usual brand of affable humor.
