The Two Vanrevels

by Booth Tarkington

A love story of Indiana, laid in the time of the Mexican War. No setting for a book of Mr. Tarkington's could be more auspicious. It is a story of Indiana by the author of The Gentleman from Indiana, and a romance of our forefathers times by the author of Monsieur Beaucaire. It is as stirring and wholesome as the former, and as deft in execution, as witty, as true to the aspect and spirit of the life it re-creates as the latter. The author is more fertile in invention than ever before, and the charm of his style is enhanced by the picture of the happy life of those old days--the days that lay between the passing of the Indian and the coming of the railroads.
