WHAT THE CRITICS SAY OF

CHIP OF THE FLYING U.

BY M. BOWER.

* * * * *

“‘Chip’ is all right.  Better than ‘The Virginian.’”

—­Brooklyn Eagle.

“The name of B.M.  Bower will stand for something readable in the estimation of every man, and most every woman, who reads this fine new story of Montana ranch and its dwellers.”—­Publisher & Retailer.

“Its qualities and merit can be summed up in the brief but sufficient statement that it is thoroughly delightful.”

—­Albany Times-Union.

“For strength of interest, vivid description, clever and convincing character, drawing and literary merit it is the surprise of the year.”

—­Walden’s Stationer and Printer.

“It is an appealing story told in an active style which fairly sparkles in reproducing the atmosphere of the wild and woolly West.  It is consistently forceful and contains a quantity of refreshing comedy.”

—­Philadelphia Press.

“Bound to stand among the famous novels of the year.”

—­Baltimore American.

“‘The Virginian’ has found many imitators, but few authors have come as near duplicating Owen Wister’s magnetic hero as has B.M.  Bower, ‘Chip of the Flying U.’”—­Philadelphia Item.

“B.M.  Bower has portrayed but few characters, but these he has pictured with the strong and yet delicate stroke of a true master.  The atmosphere of the West is perfect; one sees and feels the vibrant, vital life of the ranch activities all through the telling of the story.”

—­Cincinnati Times-Star.

“It brims over with humor showing the bright and laughing side of ranch life.  It is a story which will delightfully entertain the reader.”

—­Portland Journal.

“The story contains strength of interest, vivid descriptions, clever and convincing character drawing and literary merits, and the author lays on the colors with a master’s touch.”—­Albany Evening Journal.

WHAT THE CRITICS SAY OF

THE RANGE DWELLERS.

BY B.M.  BOWER.

“A clever and humorous story, delightfully clean and wholesome, and possessing enough of the dramatic and dangerous element to keep the imagination excited to the end.”—­The Nashville American.

“A bright, jolly, entertaining yarn without a dull page.”—­The Chicago Inter-Ocean.

“One of the most charming and appealing of all Western novels.  There is action and vivacity at all times, and the reader’s interest never sways for an instant.  The story is admirably written and runs along smoothly at all times.”—­Philadelphia Press.
