AbstractHistoryArchive Description

A Pacific Island romance, The Adorable Outcast follows Stephen Conn, an adventurer who is in love with a beautiful young native woman named Luya. When a rumour surfaces suggesting that Conn has a hoard of gold hidden away, an evil blackbirder, Fursey, kidnaps Luya as a ransom. Conn enlists the aid of Luya's tribal members to help him get her back, and they subsequently attack Fursey and his fellow traders at their stronghold. After freeing his love, Conn is made aware that her parents were actually white-skinned. This allows them to unite.
