Ralph Bonehill’s Five Stories


"Off for Hawaii" is a complete story in itself, but forms the third volume of a line of books issued under the general title of the "Flag of Freedom Series."

The Democracy is at war with the alien Traanskei Coalition. War hero Colonel Nathan Pretorius has a record of success on dangerous behind-enemy-lines missions, missions that usually leave him in the hospital.

In the present work we have the same boy heroes who figured in "When Santiago Fell" and "A Sailor Boy with Dewey," but once again the scene is shifted, and we are taken to the Hawaiian Islands, so recently annexed to the United States, on a hunt for a pearl treasure secreted in a cave overlooking the great volcano Kilauea.

My main object in writing this tale of adventure was to acquaint American boys with some of the sights to be seen throughout Hawaii, taking in Honolulu, Wailuku, Hilo, the great volcano, and numerous other places of interest. The subject is a most fascinating one, and well worthy of a more extended description than I have given it.

It may seem to some that the adventures of the boys are overdrawn, but this is hardly a fact. Hawaii is, comparatively speaking, a new country, and in such a place many things will happen which do not occur in more settled territories. Nearly every nationality under the sun is represented there, and in such a mixed community it would be strange if everything was as it should be.

Again thanking my numerous friends for the cordial manner in which they have received my other books, I place this last work in their hands, trusting they will peruse it with both pleasure and profit.

Captain Ralph Bonehill.
