Donated by Bill O'Farrell, July 2001. Copy is from 35mm silent tinted print made at the National Archives of Canada.Technical notes in Collections File. Notes from AFI catalog and NAC notes, 'A northwest melodrama adapted from James Oliver Curwood's 'God's Country and the Woman' (1915). 'Poleon and his daughter Oachi live a happy existence in the North Woods, as do their neighbours, Andre and Marie Beauvais. Dore, a villainous whisky runner fleeing from the Northwest Mounted Police, is hospitably welcomed by 'Poleon, but when he forces his attentions on Oachi, her father drives him away. Terror-stricken by the loss of his rattlesnake amulet, and thus deprived of communion with the evil spirits, he is welcomed at Andrea and Marie's cabin but is likewise thrashed soundly and sent on his way. Dore returns when Marie is ill, in Andre's absence, and kidnaps her during a storm. She escapes and leaps over an embankment, there to be found unconscious by Oachi the next day. Dore, driven mad with fear, returns to their home wounded, and a vision of Marie brings his death.'
