Synopsis by Janiss Garza
It's no surprise that this rugged story of the Northwest is based on a James Oliver Curwood novel. Two miners (Jack Drumier and James Milady) adopt a couple of orphaned children. When they grow into young adulthood, Hope Dugan (Faire Binney) and Jim McTavish William "Buster" Collier, Jr.) fall in love. The miners want Hope to have a good education and send her to a finishing school. But the school costs them a fortune and one of the men works himself to death. The other miner winds up selling their claim, but then he and Jim are robbed. To get their money back, they stage a hold-up, but Jim is arrested. Hope finds out how much Jim and the miners have suffered on her account and immediately leaves school and returns home. She also drops her finishing school ways and helps the surviving miner rescue Jim from the stage coach which is carrying him to prison.
