Description:

We have a brilliant scientist in Dr. Pareso, a foreigner who has come mysteriously to this country. He interests a young reporter, David Law, in some of his experiments, and when, with the assistance of a young Viking, Knutsson, and Law, the three start on their astounding quest for the woman who has been frozen in the northern ice tomb for centuries—then the story really starts.

The descriptions of the hardships the three men endured on their way north thru the wilds before discovery of the Lost Tribe, are very good. The plot is absolutely unique and the result is an entirely different mystery story.

Author Bio for Stringer, Arthur

Author Image

Arthur Stringer (February 26, 1874 – September 13, 1950) was a Canadian novelist, screenwriter, and poet who later moved to the United States.

He published 45 works of fiction and 15 other books, in addition to writing numerous filmscripts and articles.

Stringer was popular in his day for his crime fiction and his wilderness adventures, but he wrote in many genres, from social realism (his "Prairie" trilogy, 1915–1921) to psychological fiction (The Wine of Life (1921)). He even wrote early science fiction novels, The Story Without a Name (1924) with Russell Holman, and The Woman Who Couldn't Die (1929).

Much of his writing was for films. Film scripts on which he worked include The Perils Of Pauline (1914), The Hand Of Peril (1916), The House Of Intrigue (1919), Unseeing Eyes (1923), Empty Hands (1924), The Canadian (1926), The Purchase Price (1932), The Lady Fights Back (1937), Buck Benny Rides Again (1940) and The Iron Claw (1941).--Wikipedia.
