SYNOPSIS

When "Wolf" Ainsworth prepares for his spring expedition to the United States to sell furs smuggled in British Columbia, his daughter Delight begs to go along. In the city, Delight falls in love with Robert Draly, recently jilted by his sweetheart for a wealthier man. After Robert discovers that he loves Delight, his father dies and Robert leaves suddenly. His message fails to reach Delight because Wolf, afraid of revenue officers, takes her North. They hide in a shack for a year, while Robert searches. At a nearby camp, Roe, a member of Wolf's gang, sees Robert. Jealous of Delight's affection for him, Roe fights Robert, and although he is bested by Robert, the latter sprains his ankle. The next day, Delight finds Robert nearly frozen, and with her dog's aid, drags him to her shack. Wolf, convinced by Roe that Robert is a revenue officer, is about to kill him, when several revenue officers burst in. Robert declares his love for Delight, and together they leave the ... +
