Storyline

Frank, the son of General Armour, leaves his home at Greyhope, Staffordshire, for America to attend to his Hudson Bay interests in Canada. Shortly after his departure his fiancée, Julia, Sherwood writes him canceling her engagement with him, and soon becomes the betrothed of Lord Haldwell. Frank is heartbroken and marries Lali, the daughter of a primitive trapper. Frank sends her to his palatial home in England. Consternation reigns when the uncouth girl arrives wrapped in a buckskin blanket and furs. The tedium of table etiquette and the wearing of beautiful clothes by the people, play upon the untutored soul of Lali and for many a day she runs and hides herself in the hedges, clad in her buckskin raiment. But as time goes on she becomes accustomed to these different things and when Frank returns after a year's absence he is surprised to find his wife completely regenerated, and looking beautiful in the dress of the woman of today.
