Diminutive screen cowboy Bob Steele starred in this fine silent B-western about the disgraced son of a sheriff who is adopted by an Indian tribe after saving the son of a chief. Along with his Indian friend Little Wolf (Pedro Regas), Bob Taylor prevents Ed Stacey (Bob Fleming) and Pete Hobart (Ethan Laidlaw) from robbing the stagecoach and harming lovely Janet Reynolds (Dorothy Kitchen). Attempting to safeguard the strongbox, Little Wolf is wounded by Hobart. Bob, meanwhile, finds himself arrested for attempted robbery by his own father, Sheriff Taylor (Lafe McKee), and unable to come to Little Wolf's rescue. Returning to town, the elderly lawman is attacked by the two outlaws but is saved by his wayward son. Filled with remorse and willing to forget the past, Sheriff Taylor and young Bob are reunited. Kitchen signed a contract with Fox later that year and changed her name to Nancy Drexel.
