Joe Strong Series

12mo. cloth, colored jacket and illustrated

Vance Barnum is a real treasure when it comes to telling about how magicians do their weird tricks, how the circus acrobats pull off their various stunts, how the “fishman” remains under water so long, how the mid-air performers loop the loop and how the slackwire fellow keeps from tumbling.  He has been through it all and he writes freely for the boys from his vast experience.  They are real stories bound to hold their audiences breathlessly.
