This picture, adapted from a Robert W. Chambers novel bearing the same title, involves an old Indian custom: alien children are hidden with a friendly tribe, and when they reach maturity, they are brought back to form new families amongst the old tribe. Euan Loskiel (Harold Lockwood) and Lois de Contrecoeur (May Allison) are two such hidden children.
In the midst of trouble between the Mohicans, the Iroquois and the White Man, Euan and Lois fall in love. Lois wants to find her mother, and with Euan's protection, she does, in a dramatic climax that involves a fight between Euan and Amochol, an Indian chief (George MacDaniel).
Beautiful location photography helped draw interest to this rather confusing story.
