While gathering ideas for a new book, an author (Francis X. Bushman) falls into a precipice in this typical outdoors melodrama produced near Chicago by the Essanay Company. The author is saved by a beautiful sculptress (Irene Warfield), with whom he falls in love. Their romance, innocent as it is, comes to an end when the author feels dutybound to return home to the little wife (Gerda Holmes). She, however, has conveniently taken a lover, allowing Bushman to return to both the wilderness and the sculptress. The trade paper Variety liked the film, but accused the handsome and rather flamboyant Bushman of too much posing.
