This is an AWESOME story. I read it when I was a teenager in Middle School, in fact I read ALL OF WILLARD PRICE'S "ADVENTURE SERIES" then and I'm going to buy them for my grandchildren. This is, I believe, the 2nd book in the series written in 1952. Mr. Price was a "pioneer traveler for over sixty years and visited 148 countries, according to a dedication in this book written by his grandchildren. He also had special interest in natural history ethnology and exploration making numerous expeditions for the American Museum of National History and the National Geographic Society. He wrote 14 adventure stories featuring Hal and Roger Hunt. His exceptional writing, detailed descriptions and subject knowledge keep you enthralled in the story. Hal and Roger are 2 teenage boys - about 14 & 19 years of age who travel the world collecting wildlife specimens for their father who acquired these specimens for collectors, zoos etc. This was all legal back in the 50's when these books were written. Time and circumstances have no affect on these "TIMELESS STORIES" which are appropriate for ages 7 and up both boys and girls. My granddaughter doesn't like to read, but is "hooked" on this book. In fact we are doing a "summer school" theme around it and will be studying in depth the creatures and storms they encounter in the South Seas. Be ready to take an exciting trip on the ocean where anything can and does happen. READ IT, YOU WON'T BE SORRY.

I am 45 years old and read all of Willard Price's books when I was in junior high. I was caught up in each and every one of them! How I helped the boys struggle through each adventure! When my son was in his early teen years, I purchased all of the Price books that I could find for him. I am so excited that Amazon.com can find some of the books for me that I couldn't find years ago!! These books should be mandatory reading for all junior high students - male or (like me) female.

I've finished reading all of Willard Prices books and I've found this to be one of the best.I liked the part when Hal and Roger started finding food and water on the desert island for themselves and their Polynesian friend,Omo.Reason I like these type of books?They are very informative,as well as having a good touch of humour and adventure.
