The Young Engineers In Arizona
by H. Irving Hancock

Meet the Author

The YOUNG ENGINEERS series, written H. Irving Hancock, consisted of five titles originally published by the Henry Altemus Company between 1912 and 1920. A final phantom title, "The Young Engineers in the Land of Lead" was advertised but never published.

According to Wikipedia: "Harrie Irving Hancock (1866?-1922) was an American chemist and writer, mainly remembered as an author of children's literature and juveniles in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, and as having written a fictional depiction of a German invasion of the USA."
