Doug McClure plays a fur trapper who helps out a friend, by taking his unwell son to a doctor. Things do not go simple though as the boy ends up being kidnapped by the leader of some gold robbers. McClure sets out to search for the boy, but ends up getting framed by the gold robbers himself.
McClure starred in many adventure style films in the 70's, and looks fairly fit here compared to some of his later roles. Directed by Harold Reinl who directed some Winnetou films. Reinl does not forget these films in this one, as outstanding scenery on display. Think he had a thing for waterfalls myself, as like some of his other films we have a few shots in this one. Indians also pop at the start of the film, and involve one of the films more brutal moments. This is more explicit depending on what print you view of the film. McClure also has a dog with one of the staple names used in this type of film...." Buck ". Like the White Fang films there are moments of violence that are unsuitable for young children, but then alot of the content is of a family film. So what audience they were aiming at in films like this I am not sure. Some of the dialogue is not so great but there was enough going on to keep this viewer entertained.
