One caveat: since these books were written many years ago, today's children need to remember that back then, those of Native American origin were called Indians. Remembering that, a scene from early on won't confuse today's younger readers who may not know that in this age of overly political correctness.
We’ve read several of the books in this series and so far they’ve all earned top ratings—from them AND me!

Here then we meet the Hollisters on their twentieth adventure, that should please children as much nowadays as when they were first penned. When there is nearly an accident by two of the children of the Hollister clan, with a car which contains the Blair family, so the two families become friendly, and it isn’t long before they are headed off to Nevada and the Blair’s ranch the Tumbling K Ranch. There are mysterious goings on there, what with antelopes going missing, and strange lights seen in the mountains, but will our sleuth family be able to solve the case?
Full of incident and adventure we follow mainly the children of both families as they seek out clues to solve the mystery and accompanied by an old cowboy go off into the mountains to catch anyone involved with the mysteries and crimes going on in the area. Being followed on their trip to Nevada, and a strange new hand at the ranch so the children have to work out who is friend and who foe, before they can safely navigate their way through the mystery.
With this series published between 1953-1969 Svenson wanted to have something that would encourage children to read, and so the reading age for these books is apparently from 4-12 years old, mirroring the ages of the children of the Hollister family. It has to be said that perhaps four years of age will probably be too young for children to read themselves, but they should still enjoy having this or the others in the series read to them.
These do teach children some things, such as here about cowboys, and the kind of work that may go on on a range, as well as about snow in the mountains and such like. This, as with other books in the series are easy to read and very entertaining, making for some great escapism, and I must admit that whether you read them aloud to children or just to yourself, you will find yourself being entertained just as much as younger ones.
