Ostensibly based on pulp writer James Oliver Curwood, this minor silent Northwest melodrama featured Cornelius Keefe as a city slicker who saves a female logging camp manager (Lila Lee) from being ruined by her evil superintendent (Walter Long). The latter is trying to prevent the heroine from getting her lumber down the river in time. Good triumphs over evil once again, however, when the superintendent is killed by a bolt of lightning from nearby Thundergod Mountain. Thunder God was but one of several faux Curwood stories released to the hinterlands by Poverty Row producer Morris R. Schlank.
