The Sea-Witch

Description: 

The Sea-Witch is written by Maturin Murray Ballou. There was a quiet and orderly mien about the deck and among the watch, that spoke of the silent yet potent arm of authority. The men spoke to each other now and then, but it was in an under tone, and there was no open levity. A few men were lounging about the heel of the bowsprit on the forecastle, one or two were busy in the waist coiling cable.

The Scarlet Citadel

Description: 

The Scarlet Citadel is written by Robert E. Howard. The oliphants sounded a fanfare of triumph all over the plain, and the hoofs of the victors crunched in the breasts of the vanquished as all the straggling, shining lines converged inward like the spokes of a glittering wheel, to the spot where the last survivor still waged unequal strife.

The Scarlet Car

Description: 

The Scarlet Car is written by Richard Harding Davis. It was necessary to invite Peabody because it was his great good fortune to be engaged to Miss Forbes.

The Scalp Hunters

Description: 

The Scalp Hunters is written by Captain Mayne Reid. They are at rest again. The air is filled with odours sweet as the perfumes of Araby or Ind.

The Sapphire Cross

Description: 

The Sapphire Cross is written by George Manville Fenn. As she spoke, she seized a note lying by a large morocco case upon the dressing-table, and eagerly placed it in her friend's hand, laying the case in her lap, at the same time stroking the hair from her forehead, and kissing her tenderly, though a shade of care and anxiety was plainly visible upon the face she strove to make appear mirthful.

The Rover Roys on the Ocean

Description: 

The Rover Roys on the Ocean is written by Edward Stratemeyer. In the former volume I tried to give my young readers a glimpse of life as it actually is in one of our famous military boarding schools, with its brightness and shadows, its trials and triumphs, its little plots and counterplots, its mental and physical contests, and all that goes to make up such an existence.

The Rover of the Andes

Description: 

The Rover of the Andes is written by Robert Michael Ballantyne. Although decidedly inelegant and unhandsome, this specimen of the human family was by no means uninteresting. He was so large, and his legs were so long, that the contrast between him and the little mule which he bestrode was ridiculous.

The Chums on the Gulf

Description: 

The Chums on the Gulf is written by Captain Quincy Allen. The journey south had been effected without any accident. They were now stopping at a little hotel in this town on the river where the railroad crossed. It was a section of Northern Florida. The great and mysterious Gulf of Mexico, they knew, lay not a far stretch away toward the south. Indeed, Jerry had declared he could already smell salt water.
