Sandy Steele #3 Stormy Voyage and #4 Fire at Red Lake
In a manner similar to the Grosset and Dunlap travelogues, each Sandy Steele book imparts information about wherever Sandy is visiting. That information was grossly overdone in the first book, but in these other books, the right balance was struck, making these books quite interesting.
This is an excellent book.
On page 57, the boys use DDT, which is now banned in the United States.
This book is unusual in that the book has no villain. The book is purely adventure and danger.
This story is very exciting and thrilling. It is an excellent book.
While my reviews ended up short for both of these books, I greatly enjoyed both of them, about as much as I enjoyed my most favorite Biff Brewster books. This series is very similar to Biff Brewster.
