The mutineers refit the ship as a pirate vessel at an island which affords them convenient shelter, and in which Ned makes the discovery of an old world treasure hoard. At length, Ned succeeds in carrying off the ship, and in the meantime the captain and his associates have succeeded in rejoining the passengers, and they are after many adventures found by Ned."Mr. Collingwood is facile princeps as a teller of sea stories for boys, and the present is one of the best productions of his pen."--Standard.
