KIRKUS REVIEW

A good yarn, well told, of the bay of San Francisco, and the ships from which crews and officers deserted in droves for the gold fields, and of a lad, left in charge of one ship, and a girl and her mother in another ship, and the way in which they solved their problem of making a livelihood in a town gone mad with lust of gold. It is an exciting story, plausible in its telling, and gives a revealing picture of the early days of that glamorous city.
