Peregrine Vereker, in the eyes of his aunt Julia, who brought him up to the mature age of nineteen, was a polished young gentleman, an incipient artist and poet. In the opinion of his two uncles he was an ignorant mollycoddle, a ladylike nincompoop, unacquainted with manliness. Stung by their scorn, Peregrine ''ran away'' as many a lad before and since, to learn the world and prove his worth, and ran the gamut of happiness and misery, of fear and courage, of loneliness and love before he matched up to the requirements of his two uncles

Think of Jasper Shrig as a 19th century Sherlock Holmes. Thrilling events follow each other with the starling rapidity of machine gun fire on a still night.

Young David, the hero, knocks out several Goliaths with his American trained fists, and beautiful girls are often in peril of their virtue. Although the book contains much dialog written in dialect, it's worth the price of admission
