"One of the more eccentric of American fantasy novels. The bellicose hero, en route from Sydney to London, is pitched overboard in mid-Pacific by his exasperated shipmates, only to find land a few feet below the surface of the water. This leads him into an underground chamber where a huge diorama displays mysterious scenes from a lost continent, Sageland. On kissing the image of one of the women, the barefoot, seven-foot tall female comes to life. She is the last member of a utopian community that was extinguished 4000 years earlier." - Robert Eldridge. Bleiler, Science-Fiction: The Early Years 1286.
