In the silent era, the name Mitchell Lewis was synonymous with melodramatic pictures about the great outdoors. Here he plays Lone Wolf, who along with his sister Na-ta-le (Yvette Mitchell), are the last of their tribe. They have been raised to adulthood by Anthony Briggs (Harry Lonsdale), who is bitter over the loss of his wife to lumber foreman Robert Lacey (J.J. Bryson). As a result, Lone Wolf has never been around any white women until the day he saves pretty Yvonne Lacombe (Catherine Van Buren) from an accident. He immediately falls in love with her, and she -- spurred by a wager laid by her pals at the hunting lodge -- encourages his affection. He discovers the deceit, and even though Yvonne has grown to love him, he denounces her and turns his back on white ways. When Na-ta-le is sorely used by one of the others at the hunting lodge -- who just happens to be Lacey's son, Reynard (Eddie Hearn) -- Lone Wolf tracks him down.
