In this sequel to Skyrider, Bower gives us another adventure in the lives of Johnny Jewel and Mary V Selmer, even though Mary V takes a definite back seat most of the time here while Johnny does all the high flying.

The story picks up right where the other book ends, so there has been no time for either Johnny or Mary V to grow up any. Mary V especially is as spoiled and self-centered as she was in the earlier book...

Author Bio for Sinclair (Sinclair-Cowan), Bertha Muzzy

Author Image

Bertha Muzzy Sinclair or Sinclair-Cowan, née Muzzy (November 15, 1871 – July 23, 1940), best known by her pseudonym B. M. Bower, was an American author who wrote novels, fictional short stories, and screenplays about the American Old West. Her works, featuring cowboys and cows of the Flying U Ranch in Montana, reflected “an interest in ranch life, the use of working cowboys as main characters (even in romantic plots), the occasional appearance of eastern types for the sake of contrast, a sense of western geography as simultaneously harsh and grand, and a good deal of factual attention to such matters as cattle branding and bronc busting.”

Bower's 1912 novel Lonesome Land was praised in The Bookman magazine for its characterization. She wrote 57 Western novels, several of which were turned into films.--Wikipedia.

Author Bio for Fischer, Anton Otto

Author Image

Anton Otto Fischer (1882-1962) was an American illustrator for the Saturday Evening Post. Born in Germany but orphaned at an early age he ran away to escape being forced into the priesthood. He went to sea, sailing on German and U.S. merchant ships. In 1906 he worked for illustrator Arthur Burdette Frost who encouraged his artistic talents. He attended a French art school for two years and afterwards began to work on his own. He illustrated for several magazines including Harper's Weekly but was mostly known for providing illustrations for the Saturday Evening Post whom he worked for for 48 years. During World War II he was employed by the U.S. Coast Guard to provide 'heroic' illustrations of navy life. His drawings are archived in the Coast Guard Academy in New London, Connecticut.
