The books in this section are usually hardcover and in decent shape, though we'll sometimes offer hard-to-find books in lesser condition at a reduced price. Though we often put images of the book with their original dust jackets, the copies here won't always (or even often) have them. If that is important to you, please call ahead or say so in the order comments! 

The book is in good condition with foxing on the text edges but tight and with clean pages, dust jacket is in poor condition and in two pieces.

From the dust jacket:

Carrol Houghton, charming, lonely daughter of a wealthy eastern business man goes to visit her friend Penny Parrish at Fort Arden in Kansas. Never has Carrol enjoyed herself so! She cannot believe there actually are parents like Major and Mrs. Parrish.

Swiftly, from one gay diversion to another, moves this appealing story. There is a scavenger hunt, a junior hop, a picnic, and best of all a horse show that brings special thrills to the Parrish family. Then Penny's great "treat" for Carrol–a visit from no less person than the austere Mr. Houghton himself–threatens to spoil everything, but actually adds the crowning touch to this truly star-spangled summer.

A happy, wholesome story, full of high excitement, gaiety, and keen humor. The girls are delightful, the young men gallant–West Point bound–; and girls and boys, too, in their early teens are certain to find this tale of modern American army life absorbingly entertaining.
