B&w frontispiece, chapter decorations. "The object of this little story is to tell the tale of the revolt of the Indians and half-breeds in 1885, under Louis Riel, with the aim of getting what the half-breeds held to be their rights in the distribution of Reserve lands by Gov e r n m e n t . The events are drawn from contemporary papers; and the facts of the struggle, so far as given here, are strictly true (though all the skirmishes are not mentioned), - with this exception, that the name of the worthy agent, Maclean, at F or t Pi tt , is changed, and his family - a numerous one - are not all spoken of. But the valour and pious courage shown by him, his wife, and daughters, are matters of history. The son of Charles Dickens was, as here stated, the Inspector of Pol ice a t F ort P itt at the time. The letters and diaries here given are all genuine..The story of the Red House and its inmates is fictitious, though founded on fact."

Thousands are fleeing the Old World for the New, desperate to reach America. Maura and Patrick O'Connell, fifteen- and twelve-year-old Irish peasants, seek to escape a country destroyed by famine and the greed of English landlords. Their emigration is a search for life itself. For Sir Laurence Kirkle, eleven and son of one such English lord, America holds the promise of justice, though he steal s a f o r tune from his fath er to get there. Colorful characters, young and old, pop up everywhere - Mr. Pickler, investigator, actor Horatio Drabble, and Fred No-name and Sergeant Rumpkin of the Lime Street Runners Association. And there are Mr . C le m sp oo l and Toby Grout, the Reverend Bartholomew, Ralph Toggs and the vile Mrs. Sonderbye. Are they helping the children or stealing from them? For Maura, Patrick and Laurence,it is often hard to know until it's too late. Indeed, how th e O' Con ne lls an d young Laurence come to share a common fate in the English city of Liverpool - embarkation port for America - makes for an adventure alive with ironic coincidence and surprise. Inspired by the Victorian novels published in seri al fo rm, whi ch w ith ev ery installment pres ented new and diverting answers to the question 'What will happen next?', (this book) offers more twists and turns of story than a nineteenth-century back alley.

BAGNOLD, ENID.
"National Velvet".
New York, William Morrow. Reprint. Hard Cover with dust jacket. Ill.: Laurian Jones. 303 pp, 8vo (8 1/4" H). B&w drawings. "(Velvet Brown's) passion in life was horses. And so, when she won a notorious and unwanted piebald in a village lottery, (she) began to dream. And, since the breathless imagination of youth sees no obstacles as insuperable, Velvet's thoughts turned to the greatest race in the world - the Grand National. The Piebald (was) part carthorse, part Arab. Because he preferred sociable village life to lonely fields, he learned to jump fences. When Velvet took him on, he looked like a newly painted rocking horse. When he appeared at Aintree, the crowd looked at him and hooted. Enid Bagnold's clear, pungent style gives this joyous and captivating tale a rare flavor. It is rich with the comedy of life and character and poignant in its realization of the eager, indomitable trust of youth." Minor wrinkling at bottom of spine. Dust jacket has minor edge wear/wrinkling, two tiny edge tears, two soft creases at bottom of front panel. Very Good+/Very Good.
