Why is this book flagged as inappropriate? I loved this story so much that I read it each year until it disappeared from the library in 1967. I would love to have a copy of it. Any chance of it being re-printed for sale?
Fascinating subject, young man with a mechanical elephant searching for his lost parents in the everglades. adventures along the way but the main interest is the elephant. It is large enough inside for a bunk bed, a small bedroom in the back, a stove, table with three chairs, a lavatory, and it travels across the wilderness of swamps and saw grass in southern Florida. It is an interesting theme, I read the book as a young person, always remembered it and read it again just today (got the book on library loan from Tulsa City Oklahoma through my local library inter-library loan procedure. The book is probably out of print and it took weeks for the book to arrive after I placed the order through my library. The ending is particularly good. It is copyrighted in 1957 so it has some politically incorrect attitudes for today. However, a young adult, even an adult, who likes adventure fiction would still enjoy this book. Thank you Frederick Keith, where ever you are.
