THE HARVEY GIRLS by Samuel Hopkins Adams


Email this review


Anyone who has traveled the western railroads and piled on and off sleepers at mealtime stops for a bits at a Harvey restaurant will find this story, built around three girls working for the ""Harvey House"", in what might be meant to be Albuquerque in the early a refreshing bit of Americans. To others, it will read like a slightly dated western, complted by the central characters ing girls, and full of misunderstandings, conflicting loyallties, exciting episode and homely humor. Even the roughest characters reveal hearts of gold underneath, wish the girls all sweet and the man all gallant and brave. It has however a certain charm, and the style is smooth and witty. A sure for the railroad newsstand sales.
