Exciting adventure, though I can see why R. Frank Stockton is lesser known compared to others like Jules Verne or R. Louis Stevenson. There are actually two portions to the adventure, including an "interlude" that was a little tedious to stay focused upon. But all in all a good discovery of a more obscure author.

This was a decent book. A crew is shipwrecked on the South American coast and must fend for themselves until they can be rescued. They find the remains of an ancient incan culture and spend the last part of the book figuring out how to get rich from their discovery.
