The audience thoroughly enjoys this love story among the Klondike snows
18 January 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

This tale of adventure shows three girls who went to the Klondike to stake a gold claim left them by their father. There is one exciting incident when their guides steal their maps and another when the party, which now consists of two young miners, discover the guides staking the claim. There are two weddings, leaving one girl forlorn, which must have been an oversight for it is reported that in the Northwest "wimen is skairs." The little Eskimo is an addition to the picture and the scenery is very interesting. The snow looks cold enough and the girls look helpless enough after the loss of their map to arouse the sympathies of any man. But it all ends well and the audience thoroughly enjoys this love story among the Klondike snows, with a search for gold as the moving impulse. - The Moving Picture World, May 13, 1911
