While in Europe, Chaddie Green, a society girl, discovers that she has been left penniless.

Duncan hires Ollie, a Swedish caretaker, who frightens Chaddie. When business takes Duncan away, Chaddie goes to take care of Percy Woodhouse, an Englishman who has become ill at his place fifteen miles away.

Chaddie has a baby, and she and Duncan find happiness and prosperity in their prairie ... +
