Disease was sweeping the Zimwabi Plateau in Central Africa. Flying to try to help the stricken area, Cherry Clifford was stranded when the plane was sabotaged and crashed in the jungle. Cherry was the only survivor. The sabotage was the work of two men who were deliberately spreading the disease among the natives and animals, in order to clear the area. The crooks had discovered that the plateau held rich uranium deposits. Once the plateau was deserted, they would be able to lease the land they wanted, at a very low price. To escape the men Cherry had help from a family of chimps.
