Thank you for considering smooth reading "Jed's Boy," subtitled "A Story of Adventures in the Great World War." This 235 page book published in 1919 has several figures, and if you want to see these you can download the web browser, ePub, or kindle version.

This coming of age story follows the main character from a farm in Western Massachusetts to the Western Front during the First World War. The author, Warren Lee Goss, wrote several fiction and nonfiction books about the Civil War, including a chronicle of his experiences as a prisoner of war. He notes in the preface to this book that his "main purpose in writing this book ... is to stimulate a true spirit of Americanism. Patriotism thrives best where it is best nourished, and is not a plant of accidental growth.... We have been privileged to see the last shreds of hatred left over from our Civil War burned away in a fervor of patriotism, that has sent the sons of the Gray shoulder to shoulder with the sons of the Blue to the defence of liberty on the fields of France and Belgium."

If you need more time to finish, just let me know, and I look forward to your comments.
