KIRKUS REVIEW

Mr. Day has been not-so-deep sea fishing around the Pacific for years and this is more in line with his Explorers of the Pacific and Pirates of the Pacific written for a younger audience. The eight stories here deal with bushrangers, business men and one Coconut Queen-among them, a German who attempts to annex Hawaii for Russia but is foiled by Americans; the original Australian wool baron; a sailor-of-fortune; a Tasmanian tough named Mosquito; and Queen Emma Coe Kolbe (half American millionairess, half Polynesian princess) whose gossip-getting antics ended in Monte Carlo on the eve of the First World War... Anecdotal biographical-history with the usual slightly better than competent recap.
