Paul, a homeless boy, is the mascot of Great Cedar Camp. He forms a friendship with Mildred, the beautiful little daughter of Mr. Edgar, owner of the camp, who has a refining influence upon the untaught boy, and, in his turn, he teaches Mildred woodcraft. Edgar is not a favorite among his men. Two lumberjacks, intending to hold Mildred for ransom, kidnap her and carry her into the mountains. Following Paul's instructions, she manages to mark the trail, so that the boy, following with a rescue party, is able to guide the others to the spot where the little girl is held captive. Mr. Edgar improves unjust conditions in the camp and provides for Paul's education.
