KIRKUS REVIEW

An expedition to the Sechelles Islands to explore the possibilities of quantity commercial fisheries in the Indian Ocean, is fertile ground for the zoologist and adventurer author's descriptions of the creatures of the deep, the abundance of the land, and to a greater extent, the social life of the island natives- their wealth and values, contrast with Europeans etc. This hits at the fringe of the Carson and Heyerdahl markets.
