Sammy, a good-natured, lazy, whimsical wandering minstrel has only one object in life, and that is to please himself with playing his flute. It gets him into manifold difficulties and it also extricates him from them, so that he is content to drift through life to the easy music of his own making. He becomes a stowaway in a ship, but escapes hard labor through his music. He joins an exploring expedition and captures the fancy of the queen of the jungle. His escape from her attentions is thrilling and amusing.
