Suffering from indifference, the wife does not appreciate the love bestowed upon her by her husband. Her husband, disheartened, leaves for the far away north.

In the meantime, his wife has had time to repent her foolishness and now that she is to become a mother, longs for her husband's society. She decides to search for him. While she is traveling on dogsleds, clasping the child to her breast, he is lunging deeper and deeper into the wilds of the forests.

There are some impossible things in it
8 February 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

This is a story of civilization in the early scenes, where the backgrounds are a corner of a drawing room, a bit of a boudoir, and a fireplace, and of the Northwest, in later scenes, where the background are snowy hills and fields, a dog-sled and Canadian cabin. Some of these pictures, particularly that in which the "huskies," about fourteen of them hitched together, draw a sled along a frozen river with a pine tree background, are very interesting. The husband of the story, though much in love with his wife, abandons her because she seems to dislike him, and goes to the Northwest. Later, the wife, who has become a mother, comes to seek him, and, pushing heroically on over snowy deserts, rescues him from dire peril. It's an interesting story, well acted. There are some impossible things in it, but on the whole it is effective. - The Moving Picture World, June 17, 1911
