1923. Frontispiece by Dean Cornwell. The book begins: It was a song
that never before had been sung; once sung, never again would it be
heard. Such a song, indeed, as little girls croon to their dolls;
half funeral chant, half hymn, sung in a minor key by a girl with a
powerfully sweet lyric soprano. The last of the land breeze carried
it aft to Gaston Larrieau, the master the of 200-ton auxiliary
trading schooner Moorea, where he stood on the top step of the
companion, his leonine head and tremendous shoulders showing above
the deck house, as he smoked his first after-breakfast pipe. See
