This story is set in 1910. Frank V Webster is another Stratemeyer Syndicate pseudonym. His style is reminiscent of Horatio Alger, Jr, where the hero is typically a poor boy and/or orphan, who must fend for himself; is thwarted along the way by evil adults or other boys conspiring against him, but ultimately overcomes these obstacles to realize the American dream of success. "Comrades of the Saddle" begins: Twilight was settling on the land. The forms of trees and houses loomed big and black, their sharp outlines suggesting fanciful forms to the minds of two boys hurrying along the road which like a ribbon wound in and out among the low hills surrounding the town of Bramley, in south western Ohio. As the darkness increased lights began to twinkle from the windows of the distant farmhouses. We're later than usual, Tom, said the larger of the two boys. I hope we'll get home before father does.
