Book Notes
CATCH A FALLING STAR, By Frederic F. Van De Water. Mr. Van De Water has written a poDular, interesting tale of the American Revolution without a single battle, outside of an Indian laid and a skirinish. It is the story of Vermont's of again-on agein policy during the last years of the Revolution. Vermont was open to easy attack from Canada, and had a ready ear for the peace overtures with which Canada was plying hel. Romance plays an important palt in the story: a handsome villian, suspected of being a traitor., a long suffering hero, Olirr Royden (the same young hot head encountered in "Reluctant Rebel") and Fsith Marshall, a proud beauty, who is finally rescued irorir the
