First Edition. Uncommon early novel dealing with white slavery. "In the preparation of this novel, the author gathered his own materials even though it required him to visit the slums of most of our large cities, and to follow the trail into old Mexico. The story is concerned with the struggle between a father who is a white slave dealer and a son who falls in love with one of his father's victims. The son goes from one end of the country to the other in his endeavors to rescue the girl." Minnesota author.
