An English nobleman, Lord Ronan, has fallen in love with an American girl, Grace Filden, and at her mother's invitation he comes to visit their ranch to see the western life.

    Here is a western picture which shows the love affairs of a cowboy, a lord and an American girl, and the cowboy wins the contest. The girl is kidnapped and carried away by two Mexicans, but the cowboy follows, shoots one and compels the other to give her up. When the lord proposes she makes it known that she loves the cowboy, even though her mother has just told him she is already engaged to the lord and has sent him away. However, the lord, when he learns the true state of affairs, is man enough to go after the unfortunate cowboy, inform him of the situation and bring him back. The running fight when the Mexicans are taking the girl away and are pursued by the cowboy is thrilling and there is applause when the girl is rescued. - The Moving Picture World, July 22, 1911
