An uncomfortable predicament

In the Clutches of the Dyaks.

by Percy F. Westerman. London: S.W. Partridge & Co. 1927.

Not precisely sure why this one appeals to me so much. But the cover illustration certainly helps.

Westerman wrote many stirring stories for boys in which British pluck wins through against the odds.

This copy of the 1930 reprint was awarded to a young chap who produced an excellent colouring stamp book. The date is not recorded, but it seems to have taken place at a Scout Jamboree. Imagine his pleasure and surprise at being handed this volume.

It won't surprise you to learn that I'm quite keen on books, and spend as much of my spare time as possible picking over second hand book stalls and charity book sales with my surprisingly delicate claws.
