Waldo Emerson Smith-Jones (one of the Boston Smith-Joneses)--a tall and thin youth with an ominous cough--finds himself cast ashore on a desert island in the Pacific, so primitive that it is still... More > peopled by a race closer to the apes than to man. Waldo has all the advantages of wealth, culture and social position. And yet, when rescue came, Waldo turned his back on it and sought the jungle again. Waldo had become a cave man. Waldo’s brain, clogged with useless learning, was still nimble enough to outwit brute strength. He lacked only woodcraft and pluck. These were supplied him by the slim brown Nadara, the cave girl, who called him Thandar--the Brave One. How Waldo lifted the cave people ahead a couple of aeons in civilization, and earned the name of Thandar, makes a story rich in human interest and exciting action. This book reprints the original First Edition text of 1925, not available in hardcover since Canaveral Press’ 1962 edition.< Less
