Chip of the Flying U;
G.W. Dillingham Company: 1906.


        B.M. Bower is justly famous for capturing the very spirit of the American cowpuncher – and for telling a swiftly-moving intensely realistic tale about him. Here is one of the best of the Bower books.

       All of the boys at the Flying U did a lot of grumbling – among themselves -- when they heard that the Old Man’s sister was coming out to spend the summer. They didn’t want a woman at the ranch, and certainly not one who had just received a medical degree! But if they – particularly Chip – could have had an inkling of what was really going to happen, they would have done more than grumble.
