AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'In the late 19th century, the world was full of mysteries to solve, creatures to discover and unconquered lands to explore... In this new title in the Sam Silverthorne series, Sam escapes from his heartless aunt's care and sets sail to find his father, Sir Arthur Silverthorne, the Queen's Ornithologist, who has failed to return from an expedition to find the prized Silver Bird of Paradise.'
