Cast & Crew
Rancher Michael Dane goes to northern Canada to join his brother, Peter, who has struck gold with his partner, Angus McKenzie. En route, Dane meets and falls in love with Estelle McDonald. Arriving at the trading post, Dane discovers that Peter has been murdered. Local authorities accuse McKenzie and summarily sentence him to walk the "death trail," a kind of torture involving starvation and exposure in which the prisoner is made to walk, accompanied by guards, until he dies. Dane becomes an object of the same torture when he tries to help the wrongfully accused man. They both escape, and Dane gets into a terrific fight with a pack of wolves. Estelle follows the group in a canoe, pursued by Cameron McDonald, her uncle, who is the real murderer of Peter Dane. McDonald dies after a thrilling chase over a waterfall, and Dane and Estelle escape to civilization.
