Storyline

A fire engulfs a shipload of prospectors and adventurers making their way to Alaska. In the confusion, Mrs. Stanlaw is separated from her young daughter, who ends up in the care of 'Horseshoe' Riley and Bob Dexter. Mrs. Stanlaw is told by gambler Richard Steele that her daughter is lost. Flash forward 10 years; Riley and Dexter are running a prosperous gold mine, and Steele has just come to town to run the local saloon. Ruth, meanwhile, has grown into a beautiful young woman, and finds herself falling in love with Dexter. Between Steele sending his henchman Pierre to kill Dexter, Dexter discovering that Steele tried to kill him on the ship, and the reunion of Mrs. Stanlaw and Ruth, there's plenty of drama even without the dramatic Alaskan scenery, including the majestic glaciers.

An early, home-grown look at the Alaskan gold rush
8 September 2000 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

Quite well done when you ignore the melodramatic aspects of the plot. Interesting as an almost contemporary look at the Alaskan Gold Rush culture. The crossing of the Chilcoot pass scenes probably were borrowed from by Chaplin in 'The Gold Rush 1925)' and by other directors as well.

Supposed to be the first feature shot in Alaska. Chechahco means tenderfoot or greenhorn in one of the Alaskan native languages.
