New York: Holiday House, (1959). First Edition.

From dust jacket: A family-loving homebody -- that was Trilby Scott, age eleven. And that was all she wanted to be. (Except maybe something of an artist, for she did like to draw.) Her chief interest was in her baby brother, especially in his safety: he was just at the age to get into everything. Between him and her reckless older brother, who was always looking for excitement, she had never a calm, nor a dull, moment. The geat upset of her life came when the family moved out to a wild part of Idaho. The big country seemed so formidable that she felt it was anything but homelike -- until she discovered on the beach of a mountain lake a houseboat that looked like Noah's ark! This is a charming story of young trowth. Without recoursre to melodramatic devices, it mounts absorbingly to a fine culmination.

19 Bowden, Joan Chase. Why the Tides Ebb and Flow. Illustrated by Marc Brown.
Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company, (1979). 
Royal octavo, illustrated cream cloth (hardcover), illustrated endpapers, unpaginated [40] pp. Fine, in a Near-Fine, mylar protected dust jacket. From dust jacket: Twice every day the sea laps up and covers the shore. And twice each day it flows out over the shining sand. All this would never have come to be if the Sky Spirit had taken a moment to think. But he didn't, and by that the stubborn old woman tricked him. Old Woman had no hut. One morning she went to the Sky Spirit and asked for one, but he was far too busy. So she bided her time and asked again, this time for only a rock to shelter her. “Take one,” he answered carelessly. That was just what the stubborn old woman wanted to hear. Gleefully she climbed into her stewpot and set sail on the great green ocean. And this is the story that she tells how she came by someone who would love and protect her, someone who would keep her company, someone who would build her a hut -- and why the tides ebb and flow. Wanting something in a busy world, whether it be of Sky Spirits or preoccupied parents, is a familiar situation. Marc Brown's drawings expand on this with warmth and strength as the feisty, dauntless old woman bargains with the Sky Spirit against the dramatic backdrop of the ocean swirling down and away forever.

20 Briggs, Argye M. The Harp in the Cave. A Novel for Young People.
Grand Rapids, Michigan: Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing Group, 1957. 
Octavo, boards (hardcover), 161 pp. Near-Fine, with former-owner inscription, in a chipped dust jacket with faded spine. From jacket: In the Harp in the Cave, Argye M. Briggs, widely read author of religious novels, especially known for their strong character portrayals, has written an entertaining and absorbing story for young people in the lower teens. Setting this story of youthful adventure in the Texas prairie, place of many of the author's own childhood scenes, Mrs. Briggs gives her young readers a flavorful taste of life in America's great Southwest. Children of a circuit-riding preacher, the four young Wilkins, Carl, Rosemary, and the twins, Dick and Betty, roam the treeless plains which to them is a place of never-ending variety and delight. Their home is only a half-dugout house in the middle of the prairie, just like those of the many poor squatters around them to whom the Reverend Joseph Wilkins brings the Christian message. But for the children, the praiir, their playground, holds many secrets, and is so great a lure....
