Scarce clean stated First Edition in original unclipped dust jacket. Presentation Edition printed by publisher on front board. Clean yellow cloth boards with clean beige cloth spine, brown lettering on cover and spine. No fading, bumping or wear. Binding is tight and square, no cracking. Pages and edges are clean, with clean endpapers; no names, writing or marks. Illustrated by Edwin Schmidt. 239 pages. Dust jacket is unchipped, not price clipped (2.50 on front inside flap), slight age-toning, a few tiny edge nicks and short closed edge tears. Enclosed in new archival quality removable mylar cover. A classic and scarce story for boys. Bill Crane, just out of high school and eager for a job, goes on a June fishing trip with his friend, Ducky Davis, to a lake in the Maine wilderness. More important than the bass they catch is the discovery of a "Caterpillar" D2 Tractor, sunk and abandoned in the lake. How Bill locates the owner and buys the machine, how he and Ducky get it out of the water and make it run, is a tale that will thrill every mechanically minded boy. Of still broader interest is the story of Bill's plucky battle to build a contracting business from that modest start. 024007
