1912. Illustrated. Howard Roger Garis also wrote under the pen name of Victor Appleton for the Stratemeyer Syndicate. He was the writer of many novels in the "Tom Swift" series and other "Stratemeyer" series including "Uncle Wiggily", "Buddy Boy", and "Dick Hamilton". This is the fourth volume of the "Dick Hamilton Series" and tells of the doings of the young millionaire on the gridiron. When Dick returned to the Kentfield Military Academy after his vacation on his steam yacht, he found the football team of which he was a member, in poor shape. In fact the eleven was laughed at by other military schools, one of which refused to accept a challenge that Kentfield sent. How Dick hired a coach from Princeton and one from Yale, and how they whipped the team into shape, who championship material was made from them, you will find told of in this book. There is also related how Dick worked to save his father's wealth by getting possession of certain electric road stock, which was held by a crabbed old man who disliked cadets and football.
Of course there is also something about the bulldog, Grit, in this book, and about Uncle Ezra Larabee, and the doings of our hero's friends and enemies are fully set forth.
