Storyline

Charles Lander's daughter marries far below her station in life. Her husband, a crook, is arrested and sent to prison. Shortly after the birth of her baby, she dies, sending the child to her parents to be raised. Anita grows up to be the apple of her grandfather's eye and the darling of society. Paul Reeves, a famous western writer, meets her and they are mutually attracted to each other. He cares nothing for the frivolous pleasures of society and predicts that life in the great West can be beyond the understanding of social butterflies. The next day, Paul leaves for the West. Landers receives a letter from the foreman of his ranch, telling him of the increased cattle rustling. He goes West, taking Anita with him. Out West, Anita and Paul meet up again. After leaving the cowboy-writer Anita observes a couple of cattle thieves at work and is captured by them. Reeves, single-handed, attacks the rustlers in their den but is overpowered. The arrival of the ranch men saves him and Anita. ... Written by archivist FrankLloydFilm.com
