The Desert of Wheat

by Zane Grey

A pretty decent story of Washington State, the IWW and the First World War. Melodramatic and a bit wordy with idealized hero and heroine but definitely worth a read.

The Astonishing History of Troy Town

Flower of the Gorse

by Louis Tracy

Pretty darn good book. A bit too Victorian and idealistic, perhaps, and with one huge flaming coincidence but with good characters and some splendid sailing. And a splendid heroine.

Makes me want to visit Brittany, though not enough to learn French.

The Gold of Fairnilee

by Andrew Lang

A worthwhile fairytale or child's fantasy, most suitable for early teens or pre-teens.
