Synopsis by Sandra Brennan

This drama is another adaptation of James Fenimore Cooper's popular novel that follows the exploits of a white scout who was raised by the Mohicans. He comes to the aid of a settler's colony that is plagued by warring Indians. He becomes entangled with an old white trader and his two daughters when he rescues them from the wrath of the Huron tribe. The trader hates the Indians because they killed his wife and took her scalp. Now he scalps any Indian he encounters. It turns out that all the Hurons want are the scalps he has taken so that the spirits of the dead can rest.
