When Jake Crabtree, a luckless and lazy prospector, comes out of wintertime hibernation -- a time when Jake goes on one long alcoholic binge -- he discovers that his partner, Doc McNair, has died. In digging the doc's grave, Jake hits a rich vein. When the news hits the papers, poor Jake finds himself surrounded by masses of people itching to rob him of his gold.
