1921. With seventeen illustrations and a map. Walter E. Traprock is the pseudonym for George S. Chappell. The Cruise of the Kawa is a professional, carefully crafted joke in the form of a parody. Towards the end of the story it introduces the several authors whose work it has aped: Fred O'Brien, Martin Johnson, William Beebe, MacQuarrie, Captain Bligh and Joseph Conrad. The actual author was George S. Chappell, a professional architect trained at the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris after graduating from Yale in 1899. He was also known as George Shepard. He wrote a series of similar books over a 15-year period, into the 1930's.
