This early 20th Century feminist novel tells the story of five men
shipwrecked on an island. While there they meet five flying women.
This is a picturesque novel full of romance and high ideals. The
story begins; "It was the morning after the shipwreck. The five men
still lay where they had slept. A long time had passed since
anybody had spoken. A longtime had passed since anybody had moved.
Indeed, it looked almost as if they would never speak or move
again. So bruised and bloodless of skin were they, so bleak and
sharp of feature, so stark and hollow of eye, sorigid and moveless
of limb that they might have been corpses. Mentally, too, they were
almost moribund. They stared vacantly, straight out to sea. They
stared with the unwinking fixedness of those whose gaze is caught
in hypnotic trance."
