The White Desert
Cast & Crew
Barry Houston, the superintendent of a gang building a railroad tunnel through a Colorado mountain, warns John Keith, the project engineer, that he is doing too much blasting, thereby placing the crew in danger from avalanches. Attempting to set a record, Keith ignores Barry's advice, and, as a result of continued blasting, there is an avalanche that destroys the line camp, knocking out telegraph lines and the commissary. John and Barry go for help, returning with food and medical aid. Buck Carson, half-crazed by hunger and despair, attacks Robinette, and she throws boiling water in his face; Buck then blindly chases her toward a precipice. Barry saves her from Buck, and she confesses her love for the burly superintendent.
