1901. A record of an unusual voyage of discovery, and some romantic love affairs amid strange surroundings. The whole recounted by one Nicholas Chase, promoter of the expedition, whose reports have been arranged for publication by Paine. With drawings by Bernard J. Rosenmeyer, sketches by Chauncey Gale, and maps, etc., from Mr. Chase's note book. Paine wrote fiction, humor, verse, travel books and edited several magazines; but his outstanding work was a three-volume biography of Mark Twain, with whom he lived and traveled for four years. The Great White Way is his second novel and begins: For more than ten generations my maternal ancestors have been farers of the sea, and I was born within call of high tide. At the distance of a thousand miles inland it still called me, and often in childhood I work at night from dreams of a blue harbor with white sails.
