Africa in search of his father, Professor Tyler, a noted scientist who has gone to the gorilla country and turned up missing. Tim stows away on a
river steamer and meets Lora Lacey, posing as Lora Graham who is searching for "Spider" Webb, an ivory-safari robber and thief. Lora and Tim
pursue Webb, which leads them to Tim's captive father, and they are able to beat Webb and his minions, and share a vast ivory treasure. -
