Andy Leighton, Andrew to his mother, have journeyed from St Paul, Minnesota to Valkaria, Florida to settle the estate of her late brother-in-law, Abner Leighton. Little did they know that Valkaria was a request stop and the station nothing more than a revamped box car, which they found out soon after disembarking. Left with nothing to do but gather their belongings they were about to start trudging along the only track in the eerie moonlight when they saw lanterns bobbing their way towards them in the dark. They were soon acquainted with Captain Joe Anderson. On the dark walk to the Captain’s house is when they learn about the special project Abner Leighton was working on, and Andy soon learns about the new engine and the Pelican (which is not a bird). It wasn’t long before the game was afoot and that’s when the action and adventure started…… 10% of the profit from the sale of this book will be donated to charity. ============= KEYWORDS-TAGS: Legend of the great pink pearl, YA, Young Adult, Y.A., Action, Adventure, Biys Own, Cays, keys, Florida, Bahamas, water, sea, Metropolis, Strange Work, Wilderness, Exile, Boat Without Sails, Screw, propeller, Oars, Sequel, Aero-Catamaran, Home, Eccentric, Experimenter, Experimenteer, Unfinished Letter, Solve, Mystery, Firm, Leighton, Anderson, Andy, Hear, King Cajou, New Idea, Aeroplanes, Desperate, Needs, Bold, Appeal, Roy Osborne, Reach, Valkaria, Pelican, First Flight, Ba the Bahaman, Talk, Daring Chance, Timbado Key, Captain Monckton Bassett, Cannibal King, Pink Pearl, Bird of Death, aeroplane, Andy, Bassett, beach, boat, boathouse, Box car, boy, Cajou, Captain Anderson, car, colored, engine, Englishman, explain, flight, frame, laughter, Leighton, lever, little house, machine, Nassau, Osborne, Pelican, pink pearl, Roy, rudder, sail, schooner, shaft, Timbado, train station, uncle, Valkaria

Just then there was the hoarse sound of the locomotive whistle, and, almost with it, the grinding of the quick set brakes. As the woman and the boy sprang to their feet, the train conductor hurried into the car and the porter sprang forward to help with the baggage of the anxious travelers. As the other passengers aroused themselves in surprise at the unexpected stop, the woman and the boy were hurried to the platform and, the long train scarcely coming to a stop, assisted precipitately from the car.
