    A historic frontier story which details the experiences of a baby with Blackfoot raiders. Like others of the Kalem films which have depicted exciting episodes that might have occurred in any frontier settlement, the picture will thrill with its intensity, yet it has practically nothing of the dime novel order about it. There is an earnestness of purpose in the leading characters which makes them seem real personages and holds the interest of the audience throughout the film. The melodramatic plays some part in the development of the plot, but it is not so marked as in some of the frontier pictures and the introduction of the baby adds immensely to its interest. The play introduces a new type of Indian and the audience is treated to an exhibition of Blackfeet. These Indian characters are quite the best features of this series of Kalem films, though this by no means belittles the importance, of the story upon which the exhibition is strung. The reproduction of disappearing Indian life is an important historic work which deserves encouragement. - The Moving Picture World, September 3, 1910
