KIRKUS REVIEW

An historical novel for older boys, dealing with pan-American relations in 1812. Dick Weatherby, sailing on a whaling vessel bound for South American waters, joins another American youth who is working for Chilean independence from Spain. There's opportunity for a varied picture of the Americas of this period, from young New York life in South America, from whaling to general welfare on sea and land. It is an enthralling story, with a plot well-handled and historical material well worked in, but there is too much flag waving, intended to inspire young America with the importance of defending our political ideals, the Monroe Doctrine in the making.
