Summary:

“Daphne, raised in the redwood forests of

California by her reclusive mother,

has never seen a man.

  Having learned of the Greek gods,

Daphne mistakes the first man she sees,

a hunter named William Jones, for Apollo.

  Another young man, Fred Arnold, also stumbles

upon Daphne,

and the two men become friendly

rivals for her attentions.

When tramps set the forest afire,

William fails in his attempt to

rescue Daphne, who is found by

Fred when she wanders near

the men’s camp.  Fred’s father,

David Arnold, finds and saves

Daphne’s mother, only to discover

that she is his long-departed wife

and that Daphne and Fred are

brother and sister. 

Husband and wife are reconciled,

and William and Daphne are united.”
