Among some unknown hills Pocomoto comes upon a strange youth of gigantic size and strength,
who has been living there alone since the death of his parents many years earlier. His friends are the
wild animals that have their homes around him, and he has not spoken to a human being since his mother died.
The only name he has for himself is one which has survived in his memory since babyhood: 'Li'l Fella'.|
He and Poco become great friends and begin to make their way back to Poco's home. They break their journey, however, at a ranch where Li'l Fella's prodigious feats of strenrth arouse the greed of the foreman, who plans to exploit him . . . .
