Seb, the old-timer, persuades Dan Martin to let Poco go with his friends Lance, Willie and Tim to search for the old site of the Kewaha lodges along the Indian trails. For Lance, they have discovered, is the grandson of a famous chief.

When, after many breathtaking adventures, they find the lodges - and a warning of death to those who search too far beyond tribal taboos - Lance meets his lost relatives.

Poco, to his great surprise, is made an honorary Chief of the Kewaha tribe - and adds a war bonnet to his trophies . . .
