Book Description

This Halcyon Classics ebook collection is the complete ROVER BOYS first series, containing 20 novels published between 1899 and 1916. The Rover Boys was a popular young readers' series created by the Stratemeyer Syndicate, a publishing house which also created THE HARDY BOYS, TOM SWIFT, THE BOBBSEY TWINS, and NANCY DREW. Unlike some of the later series, the ROVER BOYS books were written exclusively by Edward Stratemeyer (writing under the pseudonym Arthur M. Winfield). Stratemeyer wrote some 1300 books selling more than 500 million copies, making him one of the most successful - and most obscure - authors in history.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Rover Boys First Series November 11, 2012
By Ray G.
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The Rover Boys are some of the best classical books I have ever read. The Rover Boys are always on some kind of exiting adventure, such as, finding there father in the heart of Africa, or looking for hidden treasure. You will not find any dirty language or crude humor. Highly recommendable for young and older readers.

Enjoy the 1900s English. Stories very well written. The customs and not using profanity is refreshing. These stories are excellent reading for teenage and younger readers.

These are excellent adventure/mystery books. Although they are written for "young Americans," they should be interesting to readers of any age or sex. The three brothers - Dick, Tom, and Sam - decide to attend a military style boarding school. While there, they have lots of adventures and solve many mysteries. The books contain no strong language or descriptions of sex and only briefly mention violence. These books were written and published from the late 1890s to 1916. Apparently during that time period, writers and editors paid little attention to spelling and punctuation errors, because this series is literally full of them. If a reader doesn't mind all the errors, he/she should enjoy the books. However, I found them to be extremely distracting, so I've subtracted one star from the rating.

I really appreciate the candor the author gives the characters in these books; bravery in the face of real danger with honest self interests and natural fears. I also like the vocabulary that isn't dumbed down for young readers. Having these books accessible on kindle is a great treasure!

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Although they may be too trusting, the Rover Boys are down to earth, honest American boys making it through turn-of-the-century America. No cell phones, and sometimes not even a land-line telephone, no fast cars (except for a 30- or 40-miles-per-hour run about. Horses and sleighs are the main means of transportation through most of the series. Very entertaining. I read them all the way - straight through.
