Make sure you read the uncensored version from 1927, not the ridiculous and absurd rewrite from 1959. Besides crude censorship, the rewrite is also incoherent since several chapters were ripped out. The '27 version is available used or in the reprint by Applewood Books.
Although McFarlane's original version of the book takes a little less credulity to enjoy, it's still hardly "literature." Nevertheless, the action is just right for 8-10 year olds. This book keeps mine on the edges of their seats. Frankly, more sophisticated action-adventure might be confusing to persons their age.
The book has some stereotypes and language that would be received with offense since the latter half of the 20th century, but it is an honest and benign vignette of American culture in its day. I'm glad some things have changed in the last 90 years, but I don't see any good coming from hiding the past.
