Circus Ring

Circus Ring by Mary Grant BruceCircus Ring

Circus Ring is the sequel to Road to Adventure.

All young people are thrilled to watch the exciting circus.  In this story, we look behind the scenes and see the ups and downs of circus life, and the courage and laughter of the people who so amuse and thrill us.

Hugh Russell, the boy clown and rider, with Nita, daughter of the Circus, make lots of new friends in this delightful story of comradeship and adventure.

“You got reason to be thankful to Jeff, ’cause if he’d been your son he couldn’t have worked harder.  His lot came on with a brand new act in the first half—called it “Stickin’ Up the Gold Escort”—real excitin’, with plenty of shootin’ an’ a coach-an’-four boltin’.  Crowe’s the coach driver—never thought you’d see him in the ring, did you?  An’ Jeff an’ young Hugh an’ Joey an’ Micky came out with an act that’s a real scream—seems that they’d trained that dog of theirs on the quiet to work up a comic bull-fight——“

What!” burst from the patient.

His wife nodded vigorously.

“Dan, it’s a riot!  Mrs Crowe fixed up kit for them—an’ a red-an’-white coat for the dog, an’ a sort of bull’s head on him, horns an’ all.  See him chargin’ those clowns!  I near laughed myself sick!  An’ the crowd—well, they just ate it!

“Great snakes!” murmured Big Dan feebly.
