Captain Tatham of Tatham Island
Captain Tatham of Tatham Island, sometimes shortened to Captain Tatham, is a 1909 adventure novel by the British writer Edgar Wallace. It is not told in a straight linear narrative, as with most Wallace novels, but instead consists of a series of witness statements by various characters involved. In subsequent rereleases its title was changed first to The Island of Galloping Gold and then Eve's Island.
