As a child, Jimmy Logan is captured by the Comanches near the Llano river in Texas. He is adopted by the chief, Eagle Claw and his wife, Pretty Kettle. The lad tries to escape many times and is beaten and starved for his efforts. He soon realizes he must be older and wiser to make his escape. Months slip into years and Jimmy grows to be an outstanding and fierce warrior. His Indian father gives him the name, White Wolf. Two older warriors fear his growing power among the tribe and plot against him. Being the son of Eagle Claw saves him from being slain.
White Wolf falls in love with an Indian maiden and a white slave girl. Eventually he meets Quanah Parker, a great Comanche chief, and they become friends of sorts.
He loves the free life of an Indian and decides to remain with the Comanches. Later he is sent back to the white world by Eagle Claw to learn the strength of the white men. He must now decide in which world he wants to live and with which woman he wants to spend his live.
