Bulldozer, by Stephen Meader - Hard Cover

CODE: 304.630

$35.00

Bill Crane, just out of high school and eager for a job, goes on a June fishing trip with his friend, Ducky Davis, to a lake in the Maine wilderness. More important than the bass they catch is the discovery of a Caterpillar D2 Tractor sunk and abandoned in the lake. How Bill locates the owner and buys the machine, how he and Ducky get it out of the water and make it run, is a tale that will thrill every mechanically minded boy.

Of still broader interest is the story of Bill’s plucky battle to build a contracting business from that modest start. He makes enemies, but he makes loyal friends as well. Willing to tackle any job with his little bulldozer, he clears orchards, digs cellars, moves buildings, plows fields, skids logs, and fights forest fires. Finally, in an exciting climax, he wins an important earth-moving contract against strong and unscrupulous competition.

This is a story of a sturdy machine and a boy with courage, ingenuity, and grit. It could happen in few places on earth except America. Softcover, 239 pages.

Sabre Pilot by Stephen Meader (Soft Cover)

CODE: 304.635

$20.00

With thirty highly successful books to his credit, Stephen W. Meader, one of the most noted and popular writers of books for young people, has covered many aspects of American life, both modern and historical. Now in Sabre Pilot, he adds a new dimension---the air.

Seventeen-year-old Kirk Owen turns from hot-rod racing to enlist in the Air Force, just as the Korean fighting starts. At A&E school in Texas, Kirk begins to realize that he'd give anything for a chance to become a pilot. With a lot of extra study, he is able to complete his second year of college credits, left unfinished when his father had a heart attack, and he qualifies as an Aviation Cadet and wins his wings. Advance training as a jet fighter pilot follows, and under accelerated wartime conditions, he is sent to Korea at once where, through grim but exciting missions he becomes a full-fledged jet "tiger."

The background of this fast moving story is as authentic as Air Force cooperation and the author's own research can make it. For young men who are looking ahead to military service it will be a rewarding book. But more than that, Sabre Pilot is a book that everyone who is interested n flying, and anyone who is looking for a dramatic and action-packed narrative will welcome and enjoy.
