STORIES BOYS LIKE by Franklin M. Reck


Email this review


Franklin M. Reck is a former editor of The American Boy magazine and he has put an example of everything likely to catch fire with a boy's reading interests--mystery, humor, high adventure, hunting and true stories of great achievements. The immediately recognizable names here are Twain, London, and Conan Doyle, but the collection is fresh--these are not the most often encountered stories in short fiction and non-fiction anthologies aimed at boys. The Saturday Evening Post, Liberty, The American Boy, St. Nicholas are some of the sources for the first publications of these stories while other entries have been adapted from books. Top grade book bait and a good gift choice for boys in this age group.
