All kinds of entertainment for venturesome stay-at-home explorers and good reading in this collection of adventures of a treasure hunter in South America. Danger and comedy dogged his footsteps. Stories of others' lives, dramatic incidents from his own, believe-it-or-not tales, unusual characters, industries as varied as chicle and panama hats, treasure hunting and treasure trove, wild animals and wild men, all contribute to a thoroughly entertaining yarn. Not a continuous story, but episodes spread over fifteen years in Central and South America.
