A snowbound prospector is saved by a Eskimo witch. He takes her as his wife and brings her back to the states. When his political importance grows, he decides he needs to be rid of the "savage".

A rather dark ending on this one. Mason Adams gives a more emotional performance than usual, though Kim Hunter is a bit miscast. If you've ever thought about leaving your Alaskan witch-wife for a polished and presentable woman, this will story may make you reconsider.

Its great to relive my childhood. I listened from 5th grade "1975" to Senior year in "1980". It was exhilarating to lose myself in these stories when falling asleep at night. Listened on WBBM 780am in Chicago. Station still on the air. Love the commercials too.
