Shadow In The Pines. This swift-paced story of adventure in World War II, set in the New Jersey pine barrens back of the Fort Dix reservation, is perhaps the finest of Stephen Meader’s long list of fine books for boys. Certainly no one will put this book down till he has finished it. The story tells how Ted, a fifteen-year-old Piney boy, helped the U. S. Army round up a gang of Nazi fifth-columnists threatening the safety of Fort Dix. The adventures are breathtaking, the pace does not falter a second, and in this, as in all of Meader’s tales, the feeling for the outdoors is so strong that we even hear a warbler’s song and smell the fresh scent of pines after rain.
