THE DAREDEVIL

Another camping story for boys (The Scrapper was a great success) and this time the central character is a rather spoiled youngster who didn't want to go to camp at all, and who- once there- did a lot of showing off before he found that there were some things that counted more than being a good all round athlete. And that even his father's ambition for him to go to college had some merit. Professional baseball was all that really mattered to him -- but before the season is over, the camp's showing matters even more. There's some confusion in the lack of clarity over the relation of campers and counsellors, the odd merging of all in the inter-camp contests, etc. But- in the main- it's good story telling and character building as well.
