When a wagon train is attacked by bandits, the only survivors are Henry Gledware (Wade Boteler) and his five-year-old daughter Lahoma (Peaches Jackson). They wander into a cabin occupied by outlaws, and the leader orders them to be killed. But Brick Willock (Russell Simpson) protests and shoots one of the band, Kansas Kimball (John Carlyle). Kimball's brother Red (H.M. Lindley) swears revenge. Whitlock escapes from the outlaws and raises Lahoma (who grows up to be played by Louise Burnham). She meets and falls in love with an Easterner, Will Compton (Jack Perrin). Kimball finally tracks down Whitlock and they kill each other in a duel. At seven reels, this Western -- which offered nothing more than your average five-reel program picture -- ran way too long.
