Synopsis by Janiss Garza
Cowboy star Tom Mix takes a break from the far West to play a rancher headed for the far North in this action-adventure. Michael Dane (Mix) is headed for gold country to join his brother Peter (Eugene Pallette) and his partner, where they have struck it rich. On the boat he meets fetching Estelle MacDonald (Kathleen Key), the niece of the trading post's manager, Cameron MacDonald (Frank Campeau), and falls in love. When he arrives, he finds disaster has struck -- Peter has been murdered and his partner is sentenced to death for the crime. Dane is convinced that the partner is innocent and goes about searching for the real culprit -- who turns out to be MacDonald. When MacDonald is killed by his own trap, Estelle is left unprotected at the camp. Dane comes to her rescue, battles a pack of fierce wolves, and returns to the States with Estelle by his side.
