Charlie to the Rescue. Shifting Winds. With these books he became known as a great master of literature intended for teenagers. He researched the Cornish Mines, the London Fire Brigade, the Postal Service, the Railways, the laying down of submarine telegraph cables, the construction of light houses, the light ship service, the life boat service, South Africa, Norway, the North Sea fishing fleet, ballooning, deep sea diving, Algiers, and many more, experiencing the lives of the men and women in these settings by living with them for weeks and months at a time, and he lived as they lived.

Some of his books were quite short, little over pages The Complete Leatherstocking Tales. James Fenimore Cooper. Across Patagonia. Lady Florence Dixie. The Survivors of the Chancellor. Jules Verne. Life in the Far West.
