Frontier Boys In The Grand Canyon, Or, A Search For Treasure

by Capt. Wyn Roosevelt

Publication: Arthur Westbrook Company, n d (ca 1908), Cleveland

First edition. 16mo. Color pictorial wrappers, 258 pp. Jim and Tom's adventure in the area of the Grand Canyon while on the run from the Cheyenne. Includes a spicy run down the Grand Canyon. "There was one place we ran through that struck me with terror. We came upon it early one afternoon. There was a sharp plunge downward of the river and on all sides, it was beaten into foam among the rocks. In the center there was a swift, clear run, that ended in big successive waves. We took it fairly in the middle. Jim had become to good a steerer to be beaten now. But when we struck the waves our boat plunged as in a heavy sea. Much of it would have made one seasick."---- taken from p. 205. Fine bright copy.
