T-Model Tommy. Here is a story set in the world of today, where the most intense interest of every boy approaching manhood is the problem of how he is going to earn his living. Red-headed Tom Ballard started off with no capital except his ancient T-Model Ford truck and built up a thriving business by his own efforts. Among the difficulties he had to overcome were the hazards of confronting the truck driver, perils of stormy weather and the danger of attack from hijackers. Tom found himself involved in adventures that took all his courage to surmount. But the battle he waged to get his business started and keep it going will interest boys as much, and will give them a great deal to think about. Mr. Meader’s familiar skill at handling plot and character shines with particular brilliance against the sober background of real existence.
