50th THOUSAND The Success of the Year


By IRVING BACHELLER WHO IS EBEN HOLDEN ? The hero of a new novel that has in it the unwritten lore of the North Woods, the invigorating atmosphere of the mountains, the humor of field and fireside, the power of rugged character, the wisdom of the plain people. The most American of all novels. Everybody is reading it; everybody is talking about it.
