On a fur-trapping expedition Poco and Johnny Ox, a famous Indian trapper, are dogged by bad luck. This, says Johnny, is the work of Mawoha - the Evil One - whose spirit is in the leader of a savage wolf pack. But in strange circumstances, and with great courage, Poco makes friends with the wolf and renames it Ahyami - the Snow Wolf. from then on, Ahyami protects them from attacks by other wolves until they return safely home through the blizzards.
