TIGER RIVER is one of the great, timeless classics of fantastic adventure fiction, a novel that fairly reeks with swashbuckling action. A fabulous gold horde and the lure of heroic adventure are the magnets that lead a small band of Americans and a Peruvian outlaw to the strange and unknown jungles of South America, and to the dark and mysterious Tigre Yacu, "the River of Missing Men."

Here are white Indians, uncanny green men, and ruthless savages who haunt every foot of this strange and unknown land. Deep in a hidden treasure valley of the Andes, the adventurers come upon a Circe whose strange attractions have lured many a missing man of the Tiger River into her evil clutches. How draughts of her forbidden wine transformed them into mindless beasts, and how her spell was finally broken, are a part of this fantastic and unforgetable book.

First published in 1923, TIGER RIVER stands today as possibly the finest novel of its type ever written. The writing is crisp and fastmoving, and one swashbuckling event flows into another with the smooth ability of this fine writer.

In 1922, its author, Arthur O. Friel - a teller of tales and a searcher' after truth - had ventured into the dangerous and unknown regions of South America in search of the truth behind the legends and tales that had for years come out of this back of beyond. Friel chronicled his adventures and his findings in the poetically-titled non-fiction volume, THE RIVER OF SEVEN STARS, and went on to write four related volumes of fiction in a series that involves this unknown land, but is heartily flavored by Mr. Friel's own fertile imagination.

TIGER RIVER is the second title of this marvelous series.

The first book, THE PATHLESS TRAIL, is already available in the Centaur Press "Time-Lost" series.
