Scope and Content
The story unfolds in the Rocky Mountain Forest Reserves of Western Canada. Most of the action takes place in the North Fork Gap of the Oldman River and in the McGillvray and Allison valleys of the Crownest Pass. The main character, Rad Harker, raised in the cow country of southern Alberta, makes living as a ranch hand. He leaves his first good job for the 2-bar-reverse-K outfit in the Milk River Ridge country because of the "bold infatuation" on the part of the foreman's daughter. After making his way west, he finds job at the Fiddleback ranch, where he is hired by the Honeysett brothers. Rad developed affection for the owners' daughter - Iris Honeysett who return from their college schooling for the summer vacations. The story develops into a contest between quiet unassuming Harker and the boastful unprincipled Sam Parks for the heart of Iris. When Parks is exposed and defeated, Harker leaves the ranch believing he has nothing to offer to a ranch owners' daughter but eventually, with the help of friends, the young people find their happiness.
