THE SECRET OF THE BURIED TOMB

For adventure minded boys this is a fast-moving series of doings in Okinawa during the late war. The author of The Quest of the Golden Condor, a traveler, writer and historian, combines in this book, as he did in the previous one, a sense of the history of the peoples and the archaeological findings with which historians are concerned. Here the archaeologist father and the boys are eternally in tumult and their various friends concoct brave adventure sometimes outside the strictest military rulings, but always human and hardy. Suspense and an intimate picture of the life of the Okinawans.
