Abstract

This is a book I remember from early childhood. For a child who grew up when toys were scarce my father’s library provided many books of all sizes and colours within the reach of small hands and short arms. They could be piled up to make towers, houses and tunnels for my big brother’s train set. The Boy Patriot was the only light blue book and the only one with a picture on the cover—a dramatic picture of a red-coated soldier threatening a boy with an up-raised sword.
