Synopsis

Lola Salazar, the daughter of a haughty California don, elopes with Sam Lash, an unkempt Kentucky trapper of no particular means. They live together in a settlement in the mountains until Sam decides that he is sick of civilization; he rejoins his former companions in the Canadian wilderness, while Lola returns to her family. Sam soon finds the nights too long and lonely and heads home, only to be shot by a couple of braves. He drags himself to Lola's hacienda, however, and they are reunited.
