KIRKUS REVIEW

For adventure's sake only, this compilation of moments of excitement in the course of professional careers. Ripley tells of terror among snakes, there is near death in the salvaging of the Tarpon by Max Gene Nohl, the dangers of a Malayan jungle that Marshall Hall knew, the tracing of Sir Alexander Macksnzi's route in the Yukon, y Scott's smuggling pictures past the Japs, locksmith Courtney's diving for the Hampshire's treasure, Greenwood Adams' race against time in Australia, a whale hunt with Harl Rossman, hunting panda with De Sage, Jr. Clyde Eddy braving the high waters of the Colorado, Harrison Forman seduced by Tibetan sorcery, Armand Denis escaping a gorilla who broke out of a cage...Vicarious thrills for homebodies.
