Manly Dustin Farnum usually did well in action-packed Westerns; perhaps this one didn't work because it wasn't packed with enough action. It certainly had its fair share of clich├ęs, however. George Kirby (William Conklin) steals a mining claim from Tom Curtis (Farnum) and forces him to become an outlaw. Years later, Curtis comes to the rescue when Anne Kirby (Marguerite Marsh) is kidnapped by real outlaws, but when he finds out she is married to his enemy, he decides to hold her captive. Although he changes his mind and offers to let her go, she stays to nurse his gunshot wounds. Kirby finds them together and accuses Anne of loving Curtis. Curtis goes to town to turn himself in and finds Bat Piper (William Elmer), another bad guy who is in cahoots with Kirby. After several gunfights, Kirby is finally killed and Anne realizes that her late husband was right -- she really does love Curtis.
