a complete collection of Rover Boy's adventures -- written between 1899 and 1930something there are 33 books that take Tom, Dick, and Sam on a whirlwind of adventures!!! Starting out in Military academy and ending as grown men with children of their own, the plucky trio are always having fun playing jokes on the other students (well, the ones from other countries with funny accents who it's okay to pick on) and in the one I'm reading now, The Rover Boys in the Jungle they're called away from the military academy when their uncle receives a cryptic message from their father long lost in the jungles of Africa! while searching for a gold mine! so the boys hastily leave school and mount a rescue expedition! What could their father need rescuing from in 1899??? well, apart from un-christian SAVAGES, there's the obvious:
will they be able to stand the peril?????!!!!
33 books. Five dollars. Oh yeah.
