Synopsis

Herbert Landis, who secretly loves Anne Travers, is sent by her father to supervise construction of a bridge in Oregon. Anne insists that society man Hilary Fenton join the party, and as a result Landis broods in his cabin, which he shares with his foreman Ole Bergson. Ole, who claims to know all about love, disguises himself as well-known desperado Blackie Blanchette and kidnaps Anne, leaving a note urging Landis to "rescue" her; however, Ole is captured by the real Blackie. While a raging forest fire breaks out, Landis rides to the cabin and confronts Blackie; as the fire reaches the cabin, Blackie meets a fiery death while Landis and Anne stagger through the flames to the river. The other suitor, finding country customs too rough, departs, leaving Anne to discover her true love.
