Synopsis

After her parents are killed by a bear in the Alaskan wilderness, 7-year-old Mara Wade is left alone in the forest with two wolf pups. She grows into adulthood as a wild creature cared for by the fiercely protective wolves. One day she saves the life of Ken Williams, an anthropologist working for the U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service, when his arm and foot are caught in steel traps set by Jarnagan, a brutal trapper intent on capturing Mara for a freak show. While Williams is recovering from his wounds in Mara's cave, the young woman is captured by Jarnagan, but aided by her wolves, Mara escapes and goes off into the wilderness. Williams radios for help, tracks down Jarnagan, and holds him until the forest rangers arrive. He then locates the wild girl and begins teaching her the ways of civilization.
