In an early pro-ecology effort, Jean Parker stars as a girl dwelling in the High Sierras. Awkward with humans, her best friends are the surrounding animals, especially her pet deer and puma. When hunters invade the territory, she struggles to protect the local wildlife. The outdoor photography is this film's principal asset; things grind to a halt whenever anyone opens his or her mouth to speak. Sequoia was based on a novel by Anne Cunningham called Malibu, and was later reissued under that title.
