KIRKUS REVIEW

Good fun -- good period -- good yarn, -- a story of Philadelphia in 1805, with Tory and anti-Tory feeling running high, and Tack Bingham as the central figure. His troubles with his boastfulness, his parents, his school fellows and instructors, his connection with the inventor of the first steam dredge ever made or seen in this country -- fact and fiction neatly blended. There's a pirate -- a love affair -- a threatened kidnapping -- and Tack's attempts to make good his boasts. Grand reading for all the kidnapping -- and Tack's attempts to make good his boasts. Grand reading for all the family.
