When 6-year-old Mabel tours Yellowstone Park with her parents, an alert Indian pony keeps her from serious injury.
Emma watches in horror when Indians shoot her husband in the head.
When Carrie braves fresh snow to see the Yellowstone Fall, she is caught in a blizzard.
An intrepid woman buys a horse and wagon and takes her family on the adventure of their lifetime.
A camp assistant evens the score with a supercilious guest.
