A magnificent plate. The greatness and servitude of the sailor-adventurer: he has to deliver a ransom of one million dollars in diamonds to free the daughter of Wang-Ho, a terrible warlord. She is being held by his rival Moukh-le-Mandchou. The journey takes in mountains with steep paths, as well as caves inhabited by bats as dangerous as the intermediaries our heroes must trust. Admire the fluid way Hermann takes his group from the edge of a steep cliff to the bowels of a bottomless cave.
