Synopsis by Janiss Garza
While Warner P. Richmond didn't exactly have matinee idol looks -- he was usually cast as a brutal villain -- he was well-suited for the role of lumberjack in this sprawling drama. Based on the novel by Ralph Connor, it took a realistic view of life at a lumber camp. MacDonald, or Big Mac (Anders Randolf), runs a lumber camp in the north. Louis Lenoir (E.L. Fernandez) has the reputation of being the camp's most dangerous man, and he proves it when he kills Big Mac during a brawl in a café. Mac's son, Ranald (Richmond), swears vengeance on Lenoir and the two men come to blows on the logs in the middle of the river. Ranald's sweetheart, Kate Murray (Marian Swayne), tries to stop him from killing Lenoir, and she almost dies herself when she falls into the rapids. Ranald comes to her rescue, and Lenoir is grateful for her intervention. He proves to be of service to Ranald later on, when he rescues him from a scheming, jealous woman.
