One of these treasures is "Destiny's Drum," first published in "Five Novels Monthly" in March, 1935. This is the story of renegade, Phil Sheridan who lands on the shore of Kamling, an Indonesian island in the Banda Sea. Immediately, he is captured by warriors of a primitive tribe with a leader, nicknamed Portugese Joe, self-proclaimed governor, whose resume includes: slave trafficker, murderer, con artist, and tyrant. Joe orders outsider Sheridan's death sentence by firing squad to keep his maniacal actions from reaching civilization. Through some clever twists and turns, Sheridan is able to escape Portugese Joe's grasp and flees deep into the dark jungle where he is ready for anything and anything just might happen.
