"The story is crowded with useful hints on sailing and camping; is exciting but not sensational, funny but never ludicrous; in fact it is a perfect book for children of all ages, and better reading for the rest of us than are most novels."--Times Literary Supplement

"Anyone over seven and under seventy who loves the real country will enjoy the book, and it is an excellent read-aloud book for various ages."--The Boston Transcript.
For ages 9 to 13.
