Oliver Optic is the pseudonym of the American teacher, noted academic and author of juvenile literature William Taylor Adams. First published in 1854, the "Boat Club" series is a set of six volumes: each volume is a new fascinating story. "The Boat Club; or, The Bunkers of Rippleton", the first volume of the "Boat Club" series, tells a story of several boys, each of different type and character. How will they cope with moral dilemmas of everyday life? A classic example of Adams' sometimes rather careless, but very natural style, the story captures the readers' attention at once. Do you want to be carried away by the fascinating adventures of the young boys on their way to adulthood? Then download the book and enjoy the reading!
