From the cover: “In this thrilling story we find ourselves in the midst of the colourful life of Nanda, an Indian native state, and the adventures of a host of fascinating characters. The heroes are two boys — Barry, the son of an English official, and Lakhsman, a native cowherd. The friends are soon involved in a series of exciting happenings, for the throne of Nanda has been left vacant, and Lakhsman is known to a few friends — and enemies — as the rightful heir. The boys set out on a perilous journey in search of the All-Seeing Eye, a red diamond, without which no coronation can be held. Needless to say, their enemies do their best to frustrate them, and there are many thrilling encounters with tigers, crocodiles, and murderers before the goal is reached.”
