Harry Perrivale's expedition into the African jungle is destined to be singularly ill-fated. Accompanied by native bearers, his wife Rita, and trader Caleb Moon, he hopes to find the legendary lost city of Akada. Moon has a treasure map that had once belonged to an earlier explorer who'd met his death twenty years before. But Moon has plans to kill Perrivale, abduct Rita, and keep the gold and ivory of Akada for himself. Then the party encounters a giant white man, Anjani, who speaks only the native dialect of the tribe with whom he has lived all his life. Who is this strange man, and how did he come to be there--and what is his connection with Akada? A thrilling jungle adventure in the tradition of Edgar Rice Burroughs, now reprinted for the first time in six decades!
