SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR! Bruce Publishing Company; Milwaukee; 1957; 1st Edition; Hardcover; 6; 6Very Good+; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; Book has been signed and dated (September 1957) by the author on the first blank endpage. Book and Dust Jacket are in Very Good to Very Good Plus condition with a tight binding and clean crisp pages. Dust Jacket is nice with some small chipping and covered by a clear mylar cover. This is NOT an ex-library book, but has come from a personal collection. The stringing of the first telegraph wires across the Western plains provides the background for this exciting story. Young John McFadden, just over from Ireland, is hired as a telegrapher and crewman by Edward Creighton, engineer in charge of the wire-stringing operation. Truce incidents of the Old West are woven into the tale and vivid descriptions of the Western plains and the wildlife. Here is a stirring story of a small band of courageous men, and the part they played in making our country great. Catholic Treasury Books are a series of books planned for readers 10 years of age or older. Taken from the great wealth of Catholic history, the books include true-to-life biographies and dramatic stories of persons and events which will make the reader proud of their Catholic heritage. Great to read aloud. This is a less common title in this wonderful series. Out of Print. Bookseller Inventory #
