Productive western writer Oliver Drake wrote this average silent oater about a boy hero, who saves a wagon train from an impending Indian attack. Drake used every cliché in the book this time, including having the cavalry show up in the nick of time. FBO's freckled boy rider Buzz Barton did his usual solid work, ably supported by grizzled old Frank Rice, a harbinger of future western sidekicks such as George "Gabby" Hayes and Al "Fuzzy" St. John. Second-string cowboy star Bill Patton takes care of the film's few romantic moments.
