“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
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.”
