Follow My Black Plume

1972 edition. Illustrated by Brian Wildsmith

Rubbing to edges and corners bumped.  Spine and part of covers have changed colur due to being in sun.

Mark Appleby is in grave danger - danger of growing up soft and spineless under his grandmother's fussy care, or sly and deceitful in his efforts to live the proper life of a boy.  Determined to break free, he forms a plan which goes completely wrong and lands him in perils and hardships he had never bargained for.  As a result, he grows up quickly.  Among those who help him are Tessa Palma, an attractive Italian girl of his own age, and Garibaldi, the lion-like guerrilla general.
