Good Family Movie

I saw this movie only one time years ago and enjoyed it a lot. I wanted to see it again, but my video store didn't carry it. The storyline is somewhat similar to another movie titled 'The Searchers.' The story is set in the old American West and involves a teenage boy who goes off to search for his sister who was kidnapped by indians. Over time the sister becomes involved with the indian who will one day become chief of the tribe. The sister has been accused of killing a member of the indian tribe with death as her punishment. When her brother finds her the only way he can save her is to race the sun across a canyon, climb up a cliff and throw himself in front of his sister who is standing at the edge of a cliff with a sack over her head, about to be executed by being shot with an arrow when the sun beams reach her. By throwing himself in front of his sister the brother will be killed by the arrow shot at his sister thus saving her life. There is a surprise ending which makes the movie well worth watching. The whole family will enjoy it.
