Item description for Cleared for Action!: Four Tales of the Sea (Bethlehem Budget Books) by Stephen W. Meader...

Four books in one: Cleared for Action, Whaler 'Round the Horn, Voyage of the Javelin and Phantom of the Blockade! Stephen Meader, master storyteller, takes the reader in four separate books across fifty years of American life upon the sea. Cleared for Action begins in the spring of 1812 when Jeff Robbins is forced from a Yankee merchant schooner to serve on a British frigate-only weeks before the United States declares war on England. In Whaler 'Round the Horn, Rodney Glenn runs away to sea on a whaler, only to be left the sole survivor of a rampage by a monster whale. Voyage of the Javelin catches the reader up in the breathtaking race of the square-riggers of the 1850s, as young Bob Wingate circles the globe, beginning as cabin boy and ending as 4th mate. In Phantom of the Blockade, Anse O'Neal, and the rest of the crews of the small Confederate blockade steamships, must come to grips with the Confederate's losing plightbut not before a last few hair-raising voyages are made between North Carolina and Bermuda. Ages 10 and up.

Reviews - What do customers think about Cleared for Action!: Four Tales of the Sea (Bethlehem Budget Books)?

Back to my boyhood  Sep 13, 2008
I read Stephen Meader When I was in Jr High School and rediscovered him now that I am retired and have more time to read for enjoyment.a great short story writer.
Introduction to terrific author  Oct 18, 2005
Stephen W. Meader (1892-1977) published 44 books for children, the first 26 while working full-time in advertising and raising a family. His novels cover much of American history, both in time and place, from Alaska to the Gulf, from colonial days to the jet age. His stories are realistic, imaginative, and exciting.

Meader's work was popular during his lifetime, but more recently, his books fell out of print and were hard to find. Bethlehem Books brought back these four nautical adventures in one inexpensive volume. "Cleared for Action!" contains Clear for Action (War of 1812), Whaler `Round the Horn (1830s), Voyage of the Javelin (1850s), and Phantom of the Blockade (Civil War).

Southern Skies, a small publishing house, is making Stephen Meader's novels available for new generations of readers. To date, they have 11 titles ($20 paperback, $35 hardcover), and plan to reprint all 44.

Now we need another enterprising publisher to resurrect Meader's contemporary master storytellers, Howard Pease and Ronald Welch. I can dream, can't I?
