Once again Monroe Salisbury plays a man of the Northwoods. This time he's Silent Duval, of mixed-blood origin, who distinguishes himself as a football player at Stanford University. But his Indian blood makes him an outcast and when he is injured, only one white girl is there to comfort him. So he decides to return home where he'll get some respect. He discovers that the girl who was nice to him back at Stanford was Mary MacDonald (Maria Draga), the daughter of the factor (Richard Cummings). She has gotten lost on the way to her father's cabin, and Duval battles a fierce storm to save her. He also finds himself up against the evil Wilston Sasson (Walter Law), a trading-post manager. After defeating Sasson, winds up not with Mary (the prejudices of the day did not often allow races to intermix), but with a mixed-blood maiden, Nadine Picard (Lura Anson), who has been waiting for him.
