The Pearl Lagoon – ebook
Very engaging tale of the South Seas, by the author of „Mutiny on the Bounty,” who was quite familiar with the area. This book has the same seafaring merit but is set in the pearl atolls of the southwestern Pacific. Into „The Pearl Lagoon” Charles Nordhoff wove his love and knowledge of the South Pacific islands and their people. It is his only story written through the eyes of young people. It is an adventure story about a California young boy, Charlie Selden who leaves his father’s ranch and is taken by his sailor uncle to the South Pacific on a pearl-hunting trip: encounters with sharks and pirates ensue. „The Pearl Lagoon” is an adventure book for boys especially, furnished with semi-autobiographical details. The story rings true today and is in all ways entertaining!
