Storyline

Starvation faces the little post of Red Gold. Jack Thorpe, in a final effort to obtain food for his wife and baby, offers all his gold for one pound of meat. Buck Gibson, who has a secret passion for Hester, Thorpe's wife, goes to her and promises to sell meat to her husband if she will betray him. She refuses, so Buck refuses to sell his meat. In desperation Thorpe tries to steal the meat from Buck and is caught. He is punished by being sent into the wilderness to starve. Hester deprives Buck of his revenge by following her husband. Next morning they are found by a half-breed with a sledgeload of meat. Thorpe induces him to let him sell the meat in Red Gold. He refuses to sell to Buck. Half starved, Buck steals, and his lot is the same as Thorpe's. Thorpe then gives up all his meat to have Buck's life spared. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
