Danger, intrigue, and adventure await you in one of L. Frank Baum's rarest works! Daughters of Destiny unfolds in the Middle Eastern country of Baluchistan and is an exciting page-turner from start to finish. When a group of Americans travels to an ancient land of deserts and palaces, its members quickly become embroiled in a plot to steal the throne. Secrets and surprises abound as the characters risk their lives in a dangerous game of power, riches, and love. Daughters of Destiny was originally published in 1906 by The Reilly and Britton Company under L. Frank Baum's pseudonym Schuyler Staunton. It is one of only three of Baum's novels written for adults. And it was written during one of Baum's most creative and productive periods. This beautiful "Centennial Edition" is illustrated in black and white by Eric Shanower and features the original frontispiece by Joseph Pierre Nuyttens. Come join L. Frank Baum on an exotic trip to the middle-east of a hundred years ago where he deftly weaves the threads of fate into a startling oriental tapestry.
