Storyline

Gertrude, a child of nature, lives in the mountains with her mother and her brother, Dick. They are herb pickers. Jim, a stranger, comes and gains her affection as he is turning from her mountain lover, Cooley. But Jim has no intention of keeping his promise of marriage, and when Gertrude appeals to him, rejects her and assaults Dick, who interferes in Gertrude's behalf. The mother learns that Jim is going away, leaving his promise unfulfilled. He has started down the mountain stream in his canoe. The mother follows on horseback, overtakes him, and, at the point of a revolver, forces him to return. A mountaineer parson marries Gertrude and Jim, the bridegroom's reluctance overcome by the mother's pistol. This accomplished she orders Jim to go, and once free he takes to his canoe. Dick arrives, followed by the mountaineers, whom he has told of his injuries and who are bent on vengeance. The mother explains the situation to them and they abandon their quest. But Jim is not to escape ... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

Not a very pleasant story
14 October 2017 | by See all my reviews

The stranger wrongs a girl and when he would desert her, she rushes to the house to get a gun with which to shoot him. He is overtaken and forced to marry her, but later his canoe is upset in the rapids and he is drowned. Not a very pleasant story, but strongly handled, with James Kirkwood and Gertrude Robinson in the leading roles. - The Moving Picture World, August 9, 1913
