A Solomon Islands plantation owner, David Sheldon becomes ill from blackwater fever following the death of many of his field hands from the disease. Joan Lackland, a female soldier of fortune, arrives by schooner in the islands. Enlisting the aid of her Kanaka crew, she defends Sheldon from an attack by the natives, led by Googomy. Joan becomes David's business partner after nursing him back to health and helps protect his mortgaged property from two greedy moneylenders. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
