DELILAH OF THE SNOWS
Delilah Of The Snows is a story about the blindness of a young man, Walter Ingleby, to the sterling worth of a girl in his own "class," his mad infatuation for another girl socially beyond his reach, and his final awakening to his folly when the other girl betrays him as wantonly as Delilah betrayed Samson, into the hands of the authorities who demand his life. The story's scene is the Klondike, with the sense conveyed of cold, deprivation, suffering, primitive passions, and the hope that the application of the law might make things right.
