The books in this section are usually hardcover and in decent shape, though we'll sometimes offer hard-to-find books in lesser condition at a reduced price. Though we often put images of the book with their original dust jackets, the copies here won't always (or even often) have them. If that is important to you, please call ahead or say so in the order comments!
A LIVELY story of three boys and a girl who, with their young uncle, are shipwrecked on an uninhabited islet off the Falkland Islands. Thirteen-year-old Amy's ambition is some day to be a scientific explorer; her favorite dream is to find the remains, or perhaps even a living specimen, of the giant sloth in Patagonia.
– New York Times (July 8, 1934)
