SYNOPSIS

Jim Wynnegate is so deeply in love with Diana, the wife of his cousin Henry, the Earl of Kerhill, that when Henry embezzles an orphanage trust fund, Jim saves Diana from shame by assuming the blame himself and disappearing. Soon after settling on a ranch in Wyoming, Jim saves an Indian girl named Naturich from the cruel Cash Hawkins, thereby incurring the outlaw's enmity. Later Cash attacks Jim, but Naturich ambushes Cash and kills him. Jim gratefully marries the Indian, and soon Naturich gives birth to little Hal, who is deeply loved by his parents and idolized by the ranch hands. Several years later, Henry is mortally wounded on a hunting trip, but before he dies, he confesses his part in the embezzlement, exonerating his cousin. Diana visits Jim, who, although loath to leave his loyal wife, agrees to allow the woman he still loves to rear Hal to his rightful station in England. Overhearing the conversation, Naturich realizes that she is about to lose her son and commits suicide. Her death overwhelms Jim, but after several years, he assumes the title of earl and finally marries ... +
