The story to this comedy-drama is based on the book by Emerson Hough, who was experiencing a surge of popularity because his book The Covered Wagon had recently been made into a hit film. Ranchman Colonel Wright (David Torrence) sends his daughter Bonnie (Alice Calhoun) to an Eastern college to receive an education. She decides to stay in the city and sends for her father, who arrives with his foreman Curly (Frank Sheridan). Even though they live in the midst of society, they are snubbed by the Easterners as uncouth. Bonnie befriends a young man, Jimie (James Morrison), whom she believes to be the gardener next door. Curly knows that his boss wants the girl to find a worthy husband and tries to discourage the romance, but Bonnie and the young man manage to elope. Wright is beside himself until he discovers that Jimie is actually the son of the wealthy family next door.
