(1874-1942) Scots author and prospector who spent some years looking for gold in Australia and New Guinea and has been wrongly identified as Australian. His Lost Race novels include The Moon God's Secret: A Tale of the Tropical Pacific (1905), in which white explorers encounter decayed relics of an advanced ancient race (see Devolution); The Gold-Seekers: A Tale of Adventure: A Gold-Extracting Motor and the Sahara Desert (1910), in which an Invention helps a young lad gain riches in the Sahara Desert; and The Rival Treasure Hunters: A Tale of the Debatable Frontier of British Guiana (1910), in which descendants of the Incas are found in South America.
