Just another mountaineer story, adequately written, but unimportant. A step up the social ladder from the usual inhabitants of the feud and gun-toting variety, but gaining nothing thereby. The story of a New York stock broker who escapes the ruin of his life, after the ruin of his fortune, by escaping the perils of the city and taking refuge in the mountains of his youth; of a young school teacher who has a yearning for the city life; and of an oddly mated couple, the man the native Lothario, the woman, city bred and gently raised, who adores him. Has some of the attributes of a popular circulating library item, but nothing out of the ordinary. Run serially in Pictorial Review.
