The Story of Jack Ballister's Fortunes
The New York Times greeted this rousing tale's publication with praise, calling it "a rattling good full of adventure as the most exacting reader of romance could wish, and the withal as health and clean, although it is founded on kidnapping and piracy." Author Howard Pyle wrote many such stories and, also, illustrated them with a distinctive pen and ink style that recalls the medieval tradition of wood-engraved images. This excellent edition of Pyle's memorable story features all of his original illustrations.
