"The Wolf" is the name bestowed upon a rugged woodsman whose ruthlessness in dealing with others is the stuff from which legends are made. When he stakes his claim on a valuable piece of mountain property, The Wolf meets his match in Nolan, who in addition to being a merciless negotiator is also a crook. Nolan manages to hold on to his property, but the Wolf threatens to take it away from him when he returns. In the meantime, Nolan dies, and his property becomes the site of a restaurant managed by his beautiful niece (Louise Lovely). The Wolf reappears and confronts the girl, who stubbornly refuses to leave. Refusing to strike a woman, the Wolf backs down and becomes the laughing stock of the territory. Angrily, he forces the girl to marry him, thereby coming into legal possession of the property. The Wolf contemptuously tells his new bride that she's welcome to leave whenever she likes, but the heroine stands her ground -- and, as expected, she and the Wolf eventually fall in love.
