This was yet another Northwestern melodrama -- several dozen were released in 1922 alone. At least this one has the capable presence of Roy Stewart, who fared well in outdoorsy roles. Virginia Tremont (Jane Novak) is engaged to Harold Lounsbury (Lloyd Whitlock); his brother Kenly (Herbert Prior) is Virginia's guardian. When their father (Spottiswoode Aitken) admits on his deathbed that he had staked a mine years before, the brothers turn against each other in their attempts to be the first to get it. Kenly sends Harold in the wrong direction and he becomes lost. After a year Virginia goes in search of him. But Kenly leaves her and her guide, Bill Bronson (Stewart) in a cabin bearing insufficient supplies. Bronson, who is the son of a man old Lounsbury had wronged, helps Virginia survive the wilds. Finally they locate Harold, who is now a squaw man. This matters little to Virginia, who has fallen in love with Bill.
