Everyone thought Stoner's Boy was dead. Seckatary Hawkins and the other boys saw him take that terrible fall into the cliff cave abyss. But the masked marauder known as the Gray Ghost is back-running the river and causing mischief . . . or is he? It's not altogether clear if/whether or not someone from the old Red Runner gang, either Androfski the Silent or Jude the Fifth, is masquerading as the Fair and Square Club's old archenemy to hide from the law. Plus, there's a new boy in town named Simon Bleaker who seems just as rotten and wily as Stoner's Boy ever was. Will Seck and his friends be able to solve the mystery in time and bring peace back to the riverbank? Before Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys, Seckatary Hawkins and his friends were solving mysteries and thrilling readers with tales of adventure, loyalty, and courage. One of the biggest fans of the series was author Harper Lee, and she ends her masterpiece To Kill a Mockingbird with a quote from The Gray Ghost. Now, the tales of the Fair and Square Club's encounters with the river renegade are back in print and ready to ignite the imaginations of devoted fans and new readers of all ages.

Robert Schulkers (1890-1972) was born just two blocks from the Licking River in Covington, Kentucky. The banks of the Ohio and Kentucky Rivers and the limestone cave country of the Bluegrass became the playgrounds from which he would later draw inspiration for his many adventure stories, books, radio plays, and comics, produced from 1918 through the 1940s.
Scholars, teachers, and general readers of To Kill a Mockingbird will find Stoner's Boy and The Gray Ghost of real interest. Reprinting Kentuckian Robert Schulker's two juvenile novels will give readers a new window into the iconic novel." - George Ella Lyon, Kentucky poet laureate and author of Many-Storied House: Poems
