About the Book

This book was initially published in 1897 as a slightly modified single volume reissue of Collingwood's first two-volume work, "Secret of the Sands or the 'Water Lily' and her crew'" (1879). The narrative starts with a shipwreck close to Weymouth. Harry Collingwood, the hero, pulls the lone survivor from the waves. The survivor informs our hero of a treasure that is hidden on a Pacific island before he passes away. "He tells the young man who saved him, "Poor as I am, it is in my power to make you rich -- aye, beyond the utmost scope of your imagination. And I will. Why should I take this secret to the grave with me?" In order to find the wealth, Harry and his companion Bob order the construction of a boat that is essentially a yacht. Harry and his childhood friend soon set off on an adventure and soon they are brought to realize that even the most comprehensive treasure maps could not reveal all the dangers and difficulties that could possibly befall even the most courageous of treasure hunters. The typical Collingwood fare, including pirates, gales, and the saving of a damsel in distress, is then presented.

About Author

Harry Collingwood

According to the majority of reports, Harry Collingwood attended the Royal Naval College in Greenwich and made a name for himself by winning numerous prizes there. But after this college's closure in 1837, it reopened solely to individuals who had completed the lieutenant's examination. According to Kirk, Collingwood attended the Royal Naval School in New Cross, which is close to Greenwich. By 1865, there were more than 210 boys enrolled at this school who were intended for maritime vocations. It trained officers and men for both the Royal Navy and the Merchant Marine. The hero, Harry Collingwood, attended the Royal Naval School at Greenwich in Collingwood's debut novel, The Secret of the Sands. At age 15, Collingwood enlisted in the Royal Navy as a midshipman. He had to give up his chosen career, nevertheless, because of his extreme nearsightedness. Collingwood travelled extensively during both his lengthy civilian career and brief naval service, according to Kitzen. Kirk claims that Collingwood's extensive travels occurred when he was working as a civilian. Collingwood passed away suddenly on 10 June, 1922 at his sister's house, just 5 days after her sister's husband had died.
