This book has a good story, well told. It is full of suspense and excitement—and what more can you want.
A passenger-carrying ship has just struck a submerged wreck. It is just after the start of the 14-18 war, but we are in the Pacific and far from the scene of the war. The ship, the Andromeda, sinks, and some of the survivors make their way to an island, where they get ashore and stay for some time. During this time they come upon the evidence of a lost and great civilisation. They are also attacked by a tribe of savages, whom at first they assume to have had nothing to do with the lost civilisation. Betting that the savages are indeed the descendants of the lost people, they put up a deception which does indeed bring about the end of the savages’ attack.
Needless to say, rescue of a sort comes in the end, and they all get back to their homes.
