Hardcover 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall "..Our treasure is the gold in the gleam of the human mind - the pearls of human thought - rare, precious gold and translucent pearls, over which the spirit floods in a revealing wonder-glow. Where is this treasure to be found? In far-away and strange places - wherever men and women and children dream over evening fires, listening to stories of the olden days. In such a search we visit the ancient red men of our own fair land; then we plunge far down into the fever-laden jungles of South America and listen to savages sitting about smoking fires. We wander with the bushmen of Australia across the sun-baked plains. We linger for a time among the savage tribes of Africa; we go north across the Sahara into the lands of the Arabs and follow the slim trail and the tinkle of the camel bells. We cross over into the dry country about the Dead Sea where the very winds whisper of the glory of a golden hour.." vii + 352 pages. Book is in GOOD or better condition.
