Isles of Despair

by Ion Idriess

Angus and Robertson, 1950, black and white line drawings, illustrated endpapers (maps), hardcover

Very Good Condition, some edge and shelf wear, some rubbing and bumping to edges and corners, no inscriptions, age toned pages (see photographs)

“The story of Barbara Thomson is fact.  That a young white girl should be the only survivor of a wreck, be taken captive by “savages”, her life saved solely because the chief of chiefs claimed her as his head daughter returned to earth life in spirit form, that she should marry a minor chief, that she should survive years of primitive life amongst savages and at last be rescued by a British warship – all this sounds like the plot of a fanciful novel of the South Seas.”
