Pyramid G86 The Spitfires GOOD
(Whirlwind In Petticoats)
By Beril Becker
Vicki and Tennie came out of the midwest and hit New York like twin
cyclones. The Robber Barons were in full swing, building famous names
and fabulous riches. But they were no match for the whirlwind Claflin
girls, who lost no time in:
Squeezing a fortune out of Commodore Vanderbilt
Ruining the most famous preacher in the city, Henry Ward Beecher
Preaching a scandalous gospel of free love - and practicing it!
Defeating Boss Tweed, the powerful, corrupt head of Tammany Hall
And starting a campaign to make Vicki the President of the United States!
The Gilded Age was one of the wildest periods of American history - but
the Claflin girls were wilder still. Here is history as you never
studied it in school!
First paperback printing, 1953, revised from the 1947 hardcover; I
have no idea how much. A very good copy for its age. Cover is clean with
edge and corner wear. Worst blivet is that long diagonal crease running
through the title. Spine is wrinkly, with a small tear at lower right
corner. Pages are browned. Binding is tight and square.
