Mr. Marshall is an adept in the manufacture of that staple product, the northwestern brand of outdoor, he-man fiction. This one is located in northern Alaska, its chief feature a lively volcano and its supporting troupe a band of natives. The rest of it is according to a well tested pattern: two men, one being a bad man, the other noble, and one girl; the girl sufficiently red headed and the problem being to shuffle the bad one into the discard and bring the others to the scheduled "clinch." The half breed hero, of course, turns out to be really white, which will not surprise the experienced reader. This is really a good story. The high spot in this one, naturally, is the volcanic eruption, which is preceded by a well done tribal dance.—The Saturday Review, May 23, 1925. [Suggest a different description.]
