Edison Film “The Life of a Cowboy”

the locale seems to be really the Western plains.
from a Western mining camp barroom to the arrival of a stage coach at a ranch with "tenderfeet" aboard, for whose delectation tricks lariat throwng is introduced, followed by the holding up of the coach by Indians, the abducation of a young gril, the case by the cowboys through pretty woods and rolling fields to the recapture of the girl, and the tragic finale where an Indian girl shoots a murderous bad man silently crawling up on the lover of the white girl.
The series is so melodramatic in treatment that it acted on the audience like a vivid play.
