The story of hundred-year-old Herman Smith Johannsen--nicknamed Jack Rabbit by
Indians--the man who introduced the sport of cross-country skiing to this
country. In the film we see him at the Canadian Ski Marathon north of
Montréal, where he is the honoured guest, and on a return trip to his native
Norway. From present to past, his life is retraced with pictures from sports
newsreels, Norwegian archives, and his family album.
