Although the star's heyday as a serial queen had passed, this Pearl White feature certainly had its share of thrills. Alexander McGivens (White) was raised like a boy by her lumberman father (George Barnum). After his death she and her father's friend, Will Brent (John W. Dillon), take over the job of floating the logs down the river. Although all she ever wears is pants, Alexander is surrounded by a number of highly inappropriate suitors, among them robber Jase Mallows (J. Thornton Baston) and crooked Easterner Jack Holloway (Richard C. Travers). The only one worth anything is Jerry O'Keefe (Corliss Giles). Before she and O'Keefe end the picture together, Alexander is bound and gagged in a mine shaft, escapes, and saves her lover who is trapped in a burning granary. This picture was shot on location by director Sam Wood in the Cumberland mountains. It was based on a novel, The Pagan of the Hills, by Charles Neville Buck.
