Pete, a Lad by Robert J Thomas
Sorry, this product is no longer available to order


Few Lads have a life's dream. Fewer still try to attain that goal. In this, the first of a four book series, Pete's persistence pays off and his unrelenting quest serves as a model for the young who lack confidence and parents seeking to nurture their lads' aim. Pete grows as a competent person when he embarks on a train by himself to spend the summer working at his Uncle's farm. He encounters cousins, chickens and sailing. He works a myriad of part time jobs to help pay for his favorite pastime - airplanes. In this and the books to follow, Pete matures and overcomes difficulties that set him apart.
