In the tradition of the Bobbsey Twins and the Hardy Boys, Dave Dashaway’s adventures continue with a race around the world! Created by the Stratemeyer Syndicate and issued under their popular house name Roy Rockwood from 1913 to 1915, „Dave Dashaway” is a five volume series of aviation adventure tales for boys. Never was there a more clever young aviator than Dave Dashaway, and all up-to-date lads will surely wish to make his acquaintance. In his very first story we find out how the hero ran away from his miserly and cruel guardian, met, befriended and fell in with a successful airman, and became a young aviator of note. It’s a good old fashioned tale about an adventurous boy at the dawn of the aviation age. There’s impossible coincidences, dastardly villains, and a young hero determined to do right.
