The picture falls short of being a good feature
The chief interest in this picture is in the elemental struggle, the throwing danger of the band of immigrants, driving into a country which, as we see it, swarms with Indians, and their final escape from the savages when attacked in overwhelming numbers. The dramatic thread, telling of the relationship of two backwoodsmen, brothers, with each other and, later, of the one with the caravan and of the other, a renegade, with the Indians, and of the results of these, is not very convincing and does not, in itself, affect us deeply. There are too many "Indians by courtesy." Large crowds of them are kept in view and, while there are extremely well pictured incidents, there are also places where the illusion wears very thin. The background is a thin wood, leafless as in late autumn. The photographs are good. The picture falls short of being a good feature, but will serve well as a program filler. - The Moving Picture World, January 20, 1912
