Frank Lloyd's competent directing kept this typical Northwoods drama from sinking too far into the realm of the ordinary. Fosdick, a soft New York society man (Allan Forrest), tries to toughen up by becoming a lumberjack in the Northwoods. He marries Marcia, an orphan at the camp (Fritzi Brunette), but soon he tires of the hard life there and returns back East. Marcia is left behind, destined to be forgotten until oil is found on her land. Fosdick, who has worn out his welcome with his relatives, finds out about the oil strike and returns to her, much to the disgust of foreman Barnes, who loves the girl (House Peters). When Marica comes down with a contagious disease, Barnes forces the cowardly Fosdick to care for her. Fosdick becomes ill himself, and dies. Marcia, who has feared Barnes all along, finally comes to the realization that he is all man -- and all hers.
