Red-Cap Adventures by S. R. Crockett

Red cap adventures by S. R. Crockett

Written to introduce children to the works of Sir Walter Scott, both volumes bear the sub-title “Stolen from the Treasure Chest of the Wizard of the North”. Stories include episodes from Waverley, Guy Mannering, Rob Roy, The Antiquary, Ivanhoe, The Fortunes of Nigel, Quentin Durward & The Pirate.

“ In this simple recounting of adventures there lurks a really high art, and not a little humor. Mr. Crockett is aiming to bring home to his critical small audience the liveliness, the excitement, the breathless adventuresomeness, of these great novels. He is luring his hearers on to read for them-selves. He tells them enough about the people and the events to make them hurry to the books to fill out details.” — Churchman.
