Storyline

Eliza Darrow, only daughter and regarded as a chattel of old Yell Darrow, when told she has to become the wife of Jake Muggs, refuses in an emphatic manner and rushes for consolation to the big trees, her only friends, and refuses to return home. She hears a cry and goes in its direction and discovers Ralph Stuart, who has become separated from his companions. She starts to run away, but Stuart catches her and disregarding her apparent hostile attitude, asks her where she lives. She takes him to her cottage, where Stuart, explaining his predicament, asks for food. Darrow, though, still irate over Eliza's disobedience, chastises her, and when Stuart interferes, he orders him from the premises. Ralph is well-nigh overcome with hunger and fatigue when Eliza brings him some food which she has obtained, and further directs him to the station.

Emphasizes the good qualities that appear in the hero and heroine
3 June 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A good love story worked out with a rough setting which emphasizes the good qualities that appear in the hero and heroine. A girl is saved from a marriage which she abhors through the timely arrival of a young man who ultimately asks for and receives her as his wife. The former suitor is otherwise disposed of and when the girl's parents visit her a year afterward, they are almost convinced that they made no mistake in giving her to this young man. The human touches through the film add to its interest. There is an interesting situation at the start when the girl obstinately refuses to accept the suitor chosen by her father. But the difficulty straightens itself all out and everybody is happy, while there is no record to show that the disappointed young man seriously mourned his loss. - The Moving Picture World, December 16, 1911
