For now this is the last Harper's Young People recorded by Librivox. It's a bit sad really as I've enjoyed them. The readers were all fairly good in this instalment, although I couldn't download the final chapter of The Brave Swiss Boy. I didn't enjoy the stories and articles as much in this volume. But it's still good listening from bygone years.
