Derrick Sterling

by Kirk Monroe

Perhaps suitable for early teens. Horatio Alger type story with plenty of action and excitement.

Inside info on coal mining in the anthracite fields of Pennsy late in the 19th century holds some interest for mechanically-minded adults. Stock up on soap.

The Debt

by Perceval Gibbon

A good short story with a satisfying surprise at the end. takes place in England and Russia prior to the revolution.

The Cruise of the Dazzler

by Jack London

Not a bad teenage adventure story about a boy whose father is simply too good to be true. The boy, on the other hand, has almost as many flaws as sufficient to make him interesting. No sex, acceptable violence.

The Curse of Capistrano

by Johnston McCulley

Far-fetched but highly entertaining tale of the old, old, old West, with Zorro at his best. Look for the secret—it's not too hard to figure out in the first chapter.
