    This book is pretty jaunty. It is also contrived, episodic, ostentatious, uber-masculine, trigger-happy, and racist. Collingwood can certainly turn a phrase. His vocabulary is impressive, and his sentences can be elaborate without being confusing. But he uses just about every cliche of the jungle adventure genre, including cannibals, murderous apes, dinosaurs, lost tribes, a city of gold, a tamed black panther, a character being mistaken for a god, ventriloquism, an emerald mine, and man-eating plants. And to top it off, the novel begins with our heroes on an "unsinkable" ocean liner that sinks after striking an iceberg.
