Women climbing mountains in skirts.
Loggers fighting for the eight hour day.
The forests and mountains of the North Cascades are alive with  progress,
but not everyone is on board. Caroline Symington comes from a prominent
family in Portland, Oregon. Much to her family’s dismay, she’s more
interested in hiking outdoors and exploring the freedoms of a 1907’s New
Woman than fancy parties and money. She plans to marry on her own terms,
not her parents. When she falls in love with Bob Alford, an enterprising
working-class man who loves the outdoors as much as she, little does she
know how sorely her theories will be tested. Betrayed by her jealous
sister, Caroline elopes, a decision that causes her father to disown her.
The young couple moves to a rugged village in the North Cascade Mountains
where Caroline begins a new life as the wife of a forest ranger. Though she
loves her life in the mountains as a wife and mother, her isolation and the
loss of her family is a challenge. As she searches for meaning among
nature, she’s ushered along by a group of like-minded women and a
mysterious, mountain man with a tragic past.
