Johnny was about to rebuke him, but the word died on his lips. "Pshaw!" he whispered to himself, "there's trouble enough without starting a quarrel beside an open grave."

****.

It's an episode of a large series and the only one I've read.
Adventures of a group of gold-miners working at a Russian concession in Alaska, year 1920.
Dangerous tigers, malevolent natives and poisonous plants, in a mostly plain narrative.
But also, mysterious grammophon disks messages, treacherous Orientals, murderous Russians, a dirigible balloon, a strange community of political exiles and many, many gold everywhere.
Not a great book but nicely readable, relatively fast-paced (after a somewhat slow first chapter) and showing a curious historical moment.
