'Jack Dudley and Fred Greenwood, two spirited young American schoolboys, spend their holiday at a ranch in Wyoming. There they have various adventures, fall in with rattlesnakes and grizzly bears, and, finally, with a very bad specimen of the Sioux Indian named Motoza. But they have a etaunch friend in the quite Fenimore Cooperieh guide, Hank Hazeltine, and although one of them, Fred Greenwood, is " missing " for a time owing to the craft of Motoza and a cow- man, Bill Tozer by name, who is nearly as bad as himself, they finallitriumph over all difficulties and enemies, and return to school and their families. Two Boys in Wyoming is an excellent, compact, and quite modern story, and will give great delight to the reading constituency for which it is intended.'
