This review is from: Jim Davis (Paperback)
This is a great "boys own" adventure story. While there is no real depth the story is well told and the descriptions are beautifully written. Masefield really brings the location and the characters to life and the relationship between Jim and the smugglers has a real Treasurer Island feel about it. We live in the valley where the story is set and therefore it has special meaning for us.
