When one thinks of the classic adventure-story authors of the pulp fiction era, H. Rider Haggard, Talbot Mundy, and Rafael Sabatini may come first to mind. But Arthur O. Friel's stellar contributions -- particularly his stories featuring Lourenço and Pedro, two workers on a rubber-tree plantation in the Amazon, and the adventures they have exploring the rain forest's mysterious back-country during the flood season -- certainly de¬serve honorable mention.
Here are tales of peril and last-minute rescue, brutal savages and men of honor, snake-worshipping armies and half-ape Lost Races --and many more! For in the shadows of the rain-forest, many evils lurk . . . human and otherwise!
Features a new introduction by Darrell Schweiter, 8 short stories, and "The Jararaca," a complete novel.
