In the Provost Sergeant, Capt. Meek has created an American Jorkens. Perhaps not gifted with the same type of fairy tale imagination, but with a very original siant of his own. Tall tales from our island possessions and protectorates, the Philippines, Hawaii, Canal Zone. Lusty tales, with contagious humor, which the Kipling and Mark Twain fans will add to their list. Ideal gift book for men, particularly. Recommend for pick-up reading, not at a gulp.
