John Xavier Kavanagh (Frank Sheridan) is a logger who bristles at the interference of Wall Street magnate Stephen Marthorn (Arthur Donaldson). He continues to fight for the independence of his business until his death. Then, his daughter Clare (Irene Boyle) takes up his unfinished work. Marthorn's son, Kenneth (Richard Travers) falls in love with Clare, and only when he gets his father to play fair does he win her. This drama was adapted from the novel by Holman Day, whose stories of New England were popular in their day. Director Harry O. Hoyt shot the film on location in Maine, and even if the storyline dragged on occasion, the scenery was beautiful enough to be mentioned in reviews.
