249 pp, 8" H. Four full-page b&w illustrations by Andrew Wyeth. Jacket design by Joseph Hopkins. Twelve and fourteen-year-old brothers, Tobie and Tommy "didn't need much room" for getting into scrapes. On the island of Dominica, in the British West Indies, "They ran their governess through a maddening series of escapades, they fell in with an octopus, a conger eel and big King, a native smuggler, and finally found themselves adrift in King's boat - all in one day. The tale of the perilous days that followed, far at sea in the smuggler's sloop, has the flavor of real old-fashioned romance. Anybody who loves sailing will enjoy the detailed account of how they managed at last to reach shore. Their wild flight through the jungle, when they finally escaped from savage Caribs with the help of King and a monkey, is vividly described by a man who knows the colorful Caribbean setting intimately." Browning to pages, light browning to endpapers, browning to edges of text block, slight lean to spine, moderate wear (colour loss) on bottom edge of boards and at top edge of spine. Dust jacket has large price-clip at top of front flap, piece missing at top of front panel/hinge, light edge and spine browning, browning on inside surface, light to moderate edge wear, two edge tears with creases, slight fading to spine colour, protected in a mylar sleeve.
