SKIN DIVER

Another story about Joe Panther, the young Seminole of Joe Panther and Swamp Chief, takes a sure fire theme and makes a healthy, natural adventure out of it, with plenty of diving data to keep enthusiasts agog. With business for his boat at a relative standstill, Joe and his friend, Tiger Tail, are hired by a young biochemist, Steve Barton, to go south for a summer of collecting undersea specimens off Big Pelican Island in the Bahamas. It is the normal course of events that make up the color of the book, for as the young men and Luke, the Bahaman boy they rescue and befriend, make their dives, battle weather and creature of the deep and finally collect the valuable material Steve needs, it all makes good reading. Nevertheless one might wish for more information about Steve's work instead of an almost total concentration on diving techniques and thrills.
