Reviews about The Green Helmet (3):
Kemath
Have been trying to find this for years, ever since I read the condensed RD version--it's hard to find.
Lonesome Orange Kid
My husband has been looking for a copy of this book (an affordable copy) literally for decades. Up to this purchase, the best I could do was find an abridged reader's digest version from a street vender in New York. The book was in the promised condition and came within the expected date. Big wife bonus points for me!
Gavigamand
A classic racing story from the fifties. Dated but pretty accurate and a good read for vintage car fans.
