This paper is a study of a series of books known as the Winston Adventure Books, published by the John C. Winston Company. Each of these books, recommended by the publishers for children ten years of age or older, is based on little-known incidents in the life of an unsung hero who helped shape history. The editors of the series have planned these books to deal with events and personalities not adequately described in history. The various books in the series cover civilization from 1300 to World War II in 1942. This series is of sufficient importance to justify a study to determine the content and quality of the individual volumes in the series and their acceptance by professional librarians and reviewers. The characteristics of the series as a whole will be analyzed. Such a paper may prove to be useful to those interested in the study of children's and young people's literature and a valuable bibliographic source for a librarian interested in identifying books appropriate for slow or reluctant readers in high schools and in becoming familiar with books potentially valuable for supplementary reading in the social studies.
Includes bibliographical references (leaves 101-108).
