    In the third installment of the Eddie Dickens saga, Eddie, our steadfast hero, finds himself en route to North America aboard the sailing ship Pompous Pig along with a cargo hold full of left shoes, the world-famous Dog's Bone Diamond, and some of the most disreputable traveling companions anyone might have the misfortune to share a berth with. A mysterious stowaway and some familiar faces from Eddie's past only complicate matters, as does being tied up and set adrift in a leaky rowboat.

    Stell dir eine Welt ohne Elektrizität vor, eine Welt ohne Plastik. Es gibt kein Licht, das abgeht, sobald du auf den Schalter drückst. Es gäbe kein Radio, keinen Fernseher, kein Telefon und Internet natürlich auch nicht. Von Computern ganz zu schweigen! Stell dir eine Welt vor, in der noch keine Narkosemittel entdeckt wurden - müsste man dich am Bein operieren, wärst du hellwach und würdest genau mitbekommen, wie der Arzt an deinen Knochen herumsägt.
