The Story of the Phantom
a novel by Lee Falk, Avon 1972
Over four hundred years ago, the lone survivor of a pirate attack on his ship swore to devote his life to the destruction of cruelty and injustice.
He was the first Phantom!
His son and his son's sons -- generation after generation -- succeeded him in the crusade. Their faces masked, they were loners who lived lives of mystery and danger moving in and out of shadows stalking feared by wrong-doers everywhere . . .
And so the legend grew - the legend of Kit Walker ... the Man-Who-Cannot-Die ... The Ghost Who Walk ... The Phantom!
