The Headhunters

(1936)
A novel by

 
 
Tom Christian is on the trail of revenge and a fortune in gold. As square-jawed and rugged as Clark Gable in his prime, Tom is headed deep into the jungles of the Solomon Islands to find Punjo Charlie - the ruthless criminal who killed his partner.

But these jungles are thick with danger...as greed, temptation and sudden violence threaten to draw Tom into the heart of darkness. There's a pile of gold.... There's a beautiful blonde.... And there's a bloodthirsty tribe of headhunters who have fallen under the spell of Punjo Charlie.

The trap has been set. The question is: Will Tom fall into it? Will he lose his way and lose his head...or will he get his revenge, get the gold and get the girl? The answer lies buried in the rain forest...and in Tom's heart. And as he's about to discover, there's only one way out of the jungle: All-out war.

In 1927, L. Ron Hubbard sailed across the Pacific to Guam to meet his naval officer father. It was the beginning of an adventure that would take him from the Western Hills of China to the South Pacific islands. Along the way he met Cantonese pirates, Chamorro natives, British spies, and headhunters of the South Pacific. He was one of the few Westerners to come away from an encounter with a headhunter tribe not only unscathed, but bearing gifts as well. Those experiences and knowledge proved invaluable in the writing of such stories as The Headhunters.
