Love this cover.


A Book of Boys’ Stories 1968

Dust Jacket blurb:
Ranging over past, present and future, the twenty-three fast-moving short stories in this book present a variety of adventures to suit all tastes…[Space, Detection, Sport, Wild West, History, Mystery] Other highlights in these gripping stories of achievement by Robert Bateman and Nicholas Marrat – excitingly illustrated by Pat Nevin – include a record-breaking cycle marathon, an exploit of wily, quick-thinking Imperno Quartaro, and a race against time to save a valuable yacht-basin from destruction by mountainous waves.

Did you get that?

I’d like an audio copy read by John Wayne, just to hear him say Pilgrim
