Enjoy the newly revised, 2nd Edition of Mil Silver's Race for All the Marbles! September, 1962. School is out, the weather is perfect, and Leo Stevenson just got a new washer and dryer. For young Mil Silver and his friends, this can only mean one thing: an exciting afternoon of box-carting! "Beneath him, Mil could feel the warm, squirming bodies of the other boys; their hot breath making the inside of the box even more stuffy and unpleasant ... but before he could think of an excuse to bail out, he heard Sherry yell 'Bombs away!' ... within seconds, the box was cart-wheeling down the hill like a shoe kicked down a flight of steps!" Imagine stuffing five boys in a cardboard container and rolling it down the side of a mountain! Far-fetched as it sounds, this is only one example of the crazy things kids did in a time before video games, DVD's and MP3 players. Life was simple and children created their own fun. But things weren't always swell. When a race with his prized puries at stake goes dangerously wrong, Mil suddenly finds he has a lot more to worry about than just losing his marbles! Principal Bratton is furious and Mil's war with Belinda is about to get ugly!

About the Author:

Sterling Simkins was born in 1953 and grew up at a time when life really was less complicated. There were no personal electronic devices to occupy one's time and few families even owned TV's. Kids walked to and from school and played outside until their parents made them come in. In an effort to preserve the memories of these days gone by, Sterling began writing articles and short stories and eventually novels. He credits his love of writing to his high school English teacher, affectionately known as DGB. Now a grandparent, Sterling hopes the nostalgic nature of his books and stories will bring a smile to the faces of readers both young and old.
