Theophile Gelas is an ex soldier of the French Army, who did most of his fighting with pots and kettles, but who won more fame for himself than most men carve with a sword. The war over, he became an innkeeper, and the circumstances of a varying fortune brought him to the High Sierras of Central California. Here he found a wayside inn, admirably suited to his taste, but off the main road, and unpromisingly bare of guests. Being an optimistic philosopher as well as a culinary genius, Theophile sets about the making of his fortune with a confidence hardly justified by circumstances. Guests of a most unexpected sort arrive at the inn, the Frenchman is involved in the web of their affairs (which include a prize-fight, an adventure in goat-herding, and a thwarted elopement), and emerges triumphant, not only assured of the prosperity of his house, but of the happiness of the guests. The narrative of the eventful summer forms the story of 'The Sky-Line Inn.'
