THE FATE OF THE GROSVENOR

A grupsome story, possibly based on fact, of the wreck of an East Indiaman off the coast of Africa, of 100 lost souls, and the ultimate survival of eight who made their way, against insuperable difficulties, over desert and through jungle, starved, parched with thirst, attacked by natives, ill, -- ultimately reaching their goal. A few figures stand out from the others -- perhaps the most sympathetic picture is that of the steward and the little boy who trusted him. A sort of ""Men Against the Land"" theme -- and if true, almost as worthy of fame as an achievement against terrific odds.
