It was Jack Hampton speaking, and he leaned on the rail of a coastwise steamer, as she came to anchor in the open roadstead of Valparaiso.

Even Bob Temple, the most matter-of-fact of the three chums known as the Radio Boys, felt his imagination stirred..

An adventure that will see them follow the threads of an old tale and take them in search of Inca treasure - into forbidden monasteries and through hollow mountains in search of a fabled and enchanted city. A journey that would take them through age-old Andean forests only to be betrayed, captured and imprisoned in an ancient Acropolis then brought on trial in front of the Council of the Incas to find an unlikely ally who helps them escape.
