Starr of the Desert;
Little, Brown & Company: 1917.



B.M.Bower



        When their father dies, Helen May and her young brother, following out his wishes, as well as those of the doctor, move to a relinquished goat ranch claim in New Mexico. They know nothing of desert life and less of goats, but they find a good friend in Starr who remains something of a mystery, until it becomes known that he is a secret service man engaged in heading off a Mexican revolution. Circumstances make it appear to him that Helen May is involved in revolutionary plots. All that follows makes dashing, breathless reading the typical Bower Book.
