The Boy Adventurers Series
A. Hyatt Verrill

The popularity of these stories for boys is a result of Mr. Verrill's unfailing ability to see things with their young eyes, to write for them and not down to them. The books follow the Young Adventurers through their strange wanderings in romantic countries.
