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.

Clear for Action by Stephen Meader (Soft Cover)

CODE: 304.633

$20.00

In the year 1812, Jeff Robbins, a Maine boy, shipped before the mast on a cargo schooner bound for Cuba. His ship was overhauled by a British frigate, and Jeff, with some of the other men, was impressed for service aboard the British vessel.

He learned the endless duties of a sailor in the British Navy and took part in several exciting sea battles with the French. When war was declared between the United States and England, Jeff and the other Americans were treated as prisoners. He and a friend escaped when the Albatross put in for water at an uninhabited Caribbean island. What they found there and how they were rescued brings this exciting tale of adventure on sea and land to its conclusion.

This is Stephen Meader at his best.
