As described in a film magazine,[4] French Canadian trapper Pierre Baptiste (Mayo) is in love with Marcette Vallois (Bedford), daughter of the post storekeeper, but he does not declare his love until he sets out with Englishman Reginald Stannard (Gordon) to locate a mine. A map giving the location of the mine falls into the hands of a loafer at the post, and unscrupulous schemers who have recently arrived at the post take advantage of the absence of Reginald to arrest Pierre to get possession of the mine. Pierre discovers that he and Stafford have located the mine on the wrong creek, so he rushes to town to relocate the claim and wins in a hard race with the schemers. In the end, Marcette declares her love for him.
