Lestrange, Dick. Dick Lestrange was created by H. De Vere Stacpoole (Mynheer Amayat, Captain Blood (II), Lavenne, Man in Grey (I), Jacques Radoub, Sigurdson, Captain Slocum) and appeared in the serial “The Garden of God” (The Strand, Mar. 20-May 7, 1923); the serial was collected in The Garden of God (1923).

Dick Lestrange is a South Seas Adventurer. As a very young child he is set adrift in the South Seas, found by coincidence by his father, and taken to an idyllic South Pacific island to be raised. On this island, “The Garden of God,” Lestrange grows up, befriends natives, fights the schemes of an evil native witch (who might be possessed by an evil spirit) and becomes the king of a native island.
