KIRKUS REVIEW

Romance of the tropics, told with all the flourishes, this autobiography of James L. Price, an athletic star and a graduate of Alabama's Polytechnic. Starting with the Honduras Fruit Company, his first act is to trounce a bullyboss and from then on he recounts stories of Indians, murders, revenge, banana, plantation life, his three great friends, one of whom had to head for the States to evade avenging families, activities running a store, his guardian Negro servant, the courage of the men under him, revolutionaries cannibals, the jungle animals and vegetation, a trip to the mountain of the gods, and a vernacular story of Balboa's explorations. Good escape with me.
