Atalanta: The Wild Girl Story Detail
Abandoned as a baby, Atalanta is raised by bears, and she becomes the "wild girl" protector of the animals. Though she hates man for his hunting ways, when Prince Meleager meets her, Atalanta begins to see her "human" side for the first time. But while love is budding between Meleager and Atalanta, Artemis, goddess of the hunt, becomes jealous of this mortal girl who dares to challenge her rule over the hunting grounds of earth. Out of vengeance, Artemis creates the Calydonian Boar, a gigantic metal monster, which she sends after Atalanta. The terrible boar wreaks havoc on the kingdom, and Prince Meleager and his uncles are sent to kill the monster. When Atalanta tries to help Prince Meleager track the metal boar, the uncles shun her, being just as prejudiced against the uncouth "wild girl" as is the goddess Artemis. In the end, to Artemis' dismay, it is Meleager, and not Atalanta, who is nearly killed by the boar, leaving the goddess to regret her jealousy. But Meleager survives, and, accepting Atalanta for who she really is, he wins her heart.
