Milt Dale is the Man of the Forest. Living alone in a camp in the wilderness called Paradise Park, he prefers the company of bears, cougars, and wolves to that of the surrounding ranchers and troublemakers. But one day he overhears a conversation that changes his life and convinces him to leave his wild paradise to save a young woman from certain doom.
The pioneer spirit runs in Helen Rayner's blood, but it may not save her from the nasty end that tough guy Snake Anson has planned for her. To get his hands on her uncle's ranch, he needs to get rid of Helen--by any means necessary. But luckily for Helen, the Man of the Forest is not about to let that happen.
