Horton, Bill. Bill Horton and his friend Jake Blyth are a pair of pearl divers in the South Pacific. Not having had any luck recently, they set out for the “Black Lagoon,” a place rich in pearl shell but also inhabited by a giant octopus and shunned by the natives. Bill finds pearl and then rescues a native fisherman from the clutches of the octopus by killing it.
