Ranson's Folly

by Richard Harding Davis

The story which gives this volume its title is that of the audacious, dare-devil exploits of a junior officer in the U.S. Army. His position and influence secure a lieutenancy in a Western post. The monotony of the life there and its regularity finally drive him into the folly of donning the disguise of a band of notorious highwaymen, and holding up the public coach. The results of this escapade are almost tragic for the reckless young excitement seeker. The story is well constructed and the denouement is convincing.
