Life in the Eagle’s Nest by Charlotte Maria Tucker (A.L.O.E.)

A Tale of Afghanistan

Afghanistan! To many an uncivilized land of terror and hatred. To others a land of intrigue and adventure. A land where few dare to tread. Go with Walter Gurney, the seventeen-year-old orphan son of a British missionary in India, who, after meeting handsome, boastful Dermot Denis, joined him on a trip into Afghanistan. Negating the danger of such a perilous trip, Walter eased his conscience with the thought of evangelizing. Infected with the exultation of his companion, nothing for the time seemed more enjoyable than this wild foray into a dangerous land. Yet within a few days they were surprised by a brutal group of Pathan Afghans. Despite his companion’s ridicule and the danger lurking in his path Walter knew that nothing could separate him from the love of Christ. God’s will always comes to pass and as God’s child he was safe in the arms of his Saviour. Will Walter be able to hold on to this faith when pressed by a Moslem Holy man? Will Sultána, the daughter of the chief, be able to help him and her people in the Eagle’s Nest? Witness with Walter the blessings of God in bringing His Gospel to hungry hearts in ways unimaginable by men.

He Gathers the Lambs by Cornelius Lambregtse

A moving book, written not only with deep insight into the ecclesiastical, religious, social, and historical situation in which the story takes place, but also with a warm, rich understanding of a child's soul. Every page of the book carries proof that it was eked out of the author's own experience. It is written from the inside out, and the people who appear in it are flesh-and-blood people as they walked the streets of southeastern Zeeland. Zeelanders with a mystical character . . . who had great difficulty appropriating in faith the redemptive deeds of the covenant God.

Also beautiful in this story are the descriptions of the natural beauty of the island on which it takes place. The author views nature with a loving but also with a knowledgeable eye. The landscape through all the seasons. . . But what is most striking is his knowledge of the soul of a child, a knowledge born out of love. Rudolf Van Reest

Nobody's Boy

by Hector Malot

Nobody's Boy, published in France under the title Sans Famille, has become justly famous as one of the supreme juvenile stories of the world. In the midst of its early popularity, it was crowned by the academy as one of the masterpieces of French literature. A few years later, it was followed by En Famille, which was published in English as a companion story under the title Nobody's Girl. Nobody's Boy is a human document of child experiences that is fascinating reading for young and old. Parents, teachers, and others, who are careful to have children read inspiring books, will welcome this beautiful story of Hector Malot, as among the best for them to recommend.

Such digressions in the original as do not belong to the heart of the story have been eliminated, so that the lost boy's experiences continue as the undisturbed interest, on through to the happy conclusion.

Loyal friendship and honest conduct are the vital ideals of this story, and the heart interest is eloquent with noble character.

Nobody's Girl by Hector Malot

Nobody's Girl, published in France under the title En Famille, follows Nobody's Boy as a companion juvenile story, and takes place with it as one of the supreme juvenile stories of the world. Like Nobody's Boy it was also crowned by the Academy, and that literary judgment has also been verified by the test of time.

Nobody's Girl is not a human document, such as is Nobody's Boy, because it has more story plot, and the adventure is in a more restricted field, but it discloses no less the nobility of a right-minded child, and how loyalty wins the way to noble deeds and life. This is another beautiful literary creation of Hector Malot which every one can recommend as an ennobling book, of interest not only to childhood, page by page to the thrilling conclusion, but to every person who loves romance and character.

Only details irrelevant for readers in North America have been eliminated. Little Perrine's loyal ideals, with their inspiring sentiments, are preserved by her through the most discouraging conditions, and are described with the simplicity for which Hector Malot is famous. The building up of a little girl's life is made a fine example for every child. Every reader of this story leaves it inspired for the better way.

St. Elmo by Augusta Jane Evans

The third most popular novel of the 19th and early 20th centuries, St. Elmo captivated millions of readers and generations of schoolgirls but lost popularity as Americans strayed toward the 1960s. Nowadays readers keep telling us that once started, nothing else gets done until they reach the end. Hundreds of grateful readers wrote Miss Evans that the book led them to see their need for salvation. Few books are both sensational and Christian; Augusta Jane Evans succeeded on both counts. Ideal as gifts to daughters and mothers.
