The Poison Belt

The Poison Belt by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
By: (1859-1930)

Shutting themselves tightly up in Challenger’s house, they start to consider what may be done. But as their countrymen start to drop, will their oxygen last long enough to determine and implement a solution?

When, some years ago, I chronicled in the Daily Gazette our epoch making journey in South America, I little thought that it should ever fall to my lot to tell an even stranger personal experience, one which is unique in all human annals and must stand out in the records of history as a great peak among the humble foothills which surround it...
