"The gobble-uns 'll git you ef you don't watch out!" wrote James Whitcomb Riley in one of his most famous poems, Little Orphant Annie. But before "Bud" Riley grew up to become one of the 19th century's most popular and respected poets, he spent a lively boyhood on the edge of the Midwestern wilderness. In Volume 5 in the Young Patriots Series, children will join Bud in his many adventures, which include learning to swim (almost drowning!), and serving as ringmaster in his own circus.
