Notes: In 1935 a small boy is found in a mine in what is known as the Belgian Congo. It is a time of ferment; nefarious forces are at play.

Soon enough a race begins, to bring the boy into safe custody. After a tortuous journey by train through the continent of Africa, the boy travels by ship to New York, where he is taken into the care of the United States Army.
