A big game hunter, Bob Foster, stalking the Mabutos tribe's famed treasure
of rough diamonds, stumbles on a white girl who saves his life. Returning
empty-handed to civilization, he tries to recoup by informing Lady de
Winter that the girl may be her
niece, who vanished years ago in a jungle crash with her godfather, the
The old lady organizes a search to be lead by Foster, who is far more
the diamonds than the girl.
They do find her, but the girl, whorshiped as a sky-sent goddess and happy
with her natural, unfettered life, does not want to leave. Neither does her
godfather, who has grown to hate civilization.
That's the situation and Foster, a hard-boiled adventurer, uses every trick
in the jungle book. It's poison arrows against bullets, a hunter's wits
against savage guile, with the Mabutos' beautiful « goddess » and the
diamonds of the Kilimandjaro as a prize.
