about this book

On the eve of World War I, three American male explorers stumble onto an all-female society somewhere in the distant reaches of the earth. Unable to believe their eyes, they promptly set out to find some men, convinced that, since "this is a civilized country...there must be men." So begins this sparkling Utopian novel, a romp through the whole world of 'masculine' and 'feminine,' as on target as when it was written sixty-five years ago.
