Based on a Rocky Mountain legend, Stone Fox tells the story of Little Willy, a young boy who lives with his grandfather in Wyoming. When Grandfather becomes ill, Little Willy must take care of his Grandfather and the farm. When he finds out that the farm is in danger of being foreclosed, Little Willy tries to save the farm and his Grandfather by competing in the National Dogsled Race. The prize money is exactly what he needs to pay off the bills to save both the farm and his Grandfather. Little Willy faces challenges along the way, but he and his dog, Searchlight, race against Stone Fox, the Native American man who is known for never losing a race.
