Book. Book condition: Good. Fair. Hardcover Signed by Author(s) 8vo - over 7 - 9" tall SIGNED and inscribed on half-title page: "Best regards to Ed D... / from the author / Donald E. Cooke". "Long before the days of America's booming growth, twelve-year-old Miles Townsend, his family, and a handful of brave Quaker families faced the savage wilderness of the New World - determined to mold a great city dedicated to freedom and brotherly love. Here is the story of Philadelphia and the early settlers who lived in caves along the Delaware River in that first hard winter of 1682. Miles, who longed to be a builder in his new homeland, met danger and excitement at every turn. From the day their governor, William Penn, planted the vision of a great community in the minds of the pioneers, Miles accepted the challenge of helping to transform the pitiful log huts and wild tangle of forest into a fine city. But winter's icy grip soon set in, and work on the Townsend house suffered constant interruption. To Miles and his sister, Becky, the thrill of high adventure overshadowed the dismal outlook of perilous weather. Defying ever-present hardships, MIles crowded his days with adventurous larks that too often changed to overwhelming perils. The tale of his frantic race over the frozen river, pursued by a howling pack of hungry wolves, will keep every youngster spellbound! Here is a yarn crammed with action and suspense! Here is a fast-paced adventure at its bes; an unforgettable experience for thrill-minded boys and girls." 184 pages. Book is in GOOD condition.

Publisher: 1988.
Very Good with no dust jacket; Remainder mark on top or bottom edge Little, Brown Reprint Paperback Remainder; 12mo 7" - 7" tall; 193 pages; A remainder with a remainder mark on the top edge. This is set in 1849 during the California Gold Rush. It's highly unlikely that a young man of twelve would stow away on a ship bound for the gold fields with his butler, both hidden in potato barrels, with the hope of striking it rich and saving his aunt's fortune. But that's how this adventure begins, and you'll be hooked before you finish the first few pages as you watch the butler, Praiseworthy, talk his way through almost any situation, beginning with their discovery as stow-aways. Praiseworthy believes that even in the rowdy gold camps brains are better than brawn for solving problems, and you'll laugh as he manages to find ways out of all the scrapes he and his young master Jack get themselves into. This is fun for anyone grade four and above, and ties in well with studies of California history; ISBN: 0316286125

Publisher: New York 1998.
with no dust jacket; New book. Putnam Reprint Paperback 8vo; 48 pages; George Washington Allen was very proud of two things -- his name and his birthday -- both of which had also belonged to his hero . Because of this he wanted to know everything it was possible to know about his namesake, so he asked a lot of questions, read a lot of books, and even visited his hero's home, Mt. Vernon. But there was one question he couldn't seem to get an answer to -- what did George Washington have for breakfast? Not even the people at Mount Vernon had the answer to that one. But George's grandmother said if he could find out what George Washington had for breakfast, she'd cook it for him then and there. And George W. Allen was determined to find out.; ISBN: 0698116119
