60 years after my Uncle gave me The Big Six for Christmas (followed by Coot Club) the following year I found this site and am reading the 12 again.
I had not heard of the story (or more correctly part story) and was lucky to find a copy and am reading it with the plaintiff sounds of Hank Williams for accompaniment.
I read here (or somewhere) that AR abandoned the story and one reason given was he didn't know how to get the boys home yet it seems to me there is a simple mechanism for this.
Like AR I have a soft spot for the D & Gs and think if AR had finished it it would have been another wonderful book. Still I guess I'll have to be satisfied at meeting them again after all this time.
