Walt Disney's Donald Duck : "lost in the Andes" (the Complete Carl Barks Disney Library Vol. 7)
by Carl Barks


Overview - After serving a stint at the Walt Disney Studios, Carl Barks began drawing the 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 shorter stories that usually revolved around crazily ingenious domestic squabbles between Donald and members of the Duckburg cast.  Read more...

Overview
After serving a stint at the Walt Disney Studios, Carl Barks began drawing the 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 shorter stories that usually revolved around crazily ingenious domestic squabbles between Donald and members of the Duckburg cast. Highlights include:
- The title story, "Lost in the Andes" (Barks's own favorite). 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 gelatin, a truant officer who matches wits with his nephews, and a ranch hand who outwits cattle rustlers.
