Highlights include: The title story, Lost in the Andes: Donald and the nephews embark on an expedition to Peru to find where square eggs come from only to meet danger in a mysterious valley whose inhabitants all speak with a southern drawl, and where Huey, Dewey, and Louie save Unca' Donald's life by learning how to blow square bubbles! Two stories co-starring the unbearably lucky Gladstone, including the epic "Race to the South Seas," as Donald and Gladstone try to win Uncle Scrooge's favor by being the first to rescue him from a desert island. Two Christmas stories, including "The Golden Christmas Tree," one of Barks's most fantastic stories that pits him and the nephews against a witch who wants to destroy all the Christmas trees in the world. In other stories, Donald plays a TV quiz show contestant and ends up encased in a giant barrel of "Shaky-Jell," a truant officer who matches wits with his nephews, and a ranch hand who outwits cattle rustlers.

After serving a stint at the Walt Disney Studios, Carl Barks began drawingthe comic-book adventures of Donald Duck in 1942. He alternated between longish,sprawling 20- or 30-page adventure yarns filled with the romance of danger,courage, and derring-do, whose exotic locales spanned the globe, and shorterstories that usually revolved around crazily ingenious domestic squabblesbetween Donald and members of the Duckburg cast. Highlights include:
•The title story, "Lost in the Andes" (Barks's own favorite).

AS 5 STARS AS 5 STARS GET. Barks' wonderful, wonderful world of ducks, with square chickens, Huey, Dewey, and Louie, zombies, Unca Scrooge, golden xmas trees, and of course, Donald. Barks made the single finest comics cosmos ever. And even though this is a very generous offering of stories (and informative supplemental comments on the stories and Barks) it is just the tip of the Barks iceberg. He is one of America's and the world's top, top, top comics creators and he influenced the imaginations of generations of comics creators the world over. And if like me, you remember some of these stories from when they were originally published, you will relive as well as reread some of the magic.
