A splendid and rousing South Seas adventure by Jack London. An iron sailing ship, the Pyrenees, has a cargo of wheat burning in her hold. She comes to Pitcairn's Island flying a distress signal, seeking a safe anchorage where the ship could be beached, so that the fire would burn itself out, leaving the iron hull. McCoy, chief magistrate and governor of Pitcairn's and grandson of one of the Bounty mutineers, comes aboard and tells the Captain  there is no beach or anchorage on Pitcairn's and that he should have "slacked away for Mangareva," 300 miles distant. McCoy agrees to go along with her to Mangareva as pilot, hoping to strike the island at mid-morning next day.
