Cast & Crew
Eric Straive, reared in the Canadian Northwest and educated by his erudite father, is a child of nature. His father dies as he reaches manhood. Capitalists use a forged document to claim rights over Eric's estate. Eric meets a white woman for the first time when James Heatherton brings his daughter, Floria, to camp nearby while he investigates mineral deposits. Eric is attracted to Floria, but she spurns him as a barbarian. When Heatherton's representative, Brant, calls upon Eric's lawyer to complete the deal, Eric exposes the forgery through Redwing, who was present when the elder Straive died. Enraged, Eric nearly kills Brant but is calmed by Floria. Eric gives his estate to found a conservatory where the poor may be taught to sing, thus making possible Floria's ambition.
