The famous ship, The Flying Dutchman, was lost off the coast of South America - and its crew were condemned to an eternity of misery in its ghastly wreck. Ben and his dog Ned escaped - and wandered the world, never ageing, moving on only when the ship's bell tolled and a new mission beckoned. But now the evil Captain Vanderdecken wants them back . . . The action-packed, adventure-filled follow-up to CASTAWAYS OF THE FLYING DUTCHMAN.
