Scout Series No.1: The Secret of the Swamp


Piet Prins

Book One of the famous Scout series!

When Tom names his German shepherd puppy Scout, little does he know how aptly he has named him. Although the dog's tracking ability gets him and his master into serious trouble, he also saves Tom's life. Tom finds himself caught up in events of World War Two. In his youthful adventurousness, Tom is forced to call on the courage and talents of his clever dog again and again.

As the allied forces approach his home town, Tom and his friend overhear German military secrets. The secret trail through the swamp puts Scout's talents and Tom's courage and endurance to the ultimate test. When they get to the other town, they go straight to the Allied command post and tell them what they overheard from the Germans. As dawn breaks Tom shows the secret path to the Allies, who end up liberating Tom's home town.

About the Author: Pieter Jongeling

Mr. Jongeling was born in the northern part of The Netherlands and studied to become a teacher. He indeed did teach for some years, but soon became the international correspondent of a Dutch newspaper. In 1942 he was arrested by the Germans and sent to a concentration camp. After the allied victory in 1945 he returned to The Netherlands and became one of the most important journalists and politicians in The Netherlands. For many years he was the editor of a Reformed Christian daily newspaper, in which he wrote most of his children's books as serials under the name Piet Prins. The first thing many people read when the newspaper arrived was these serials. In 1963 Mr. Jongeling became member of the Dutch parliament for the Reformed Political Alliance. One commentator mused: "What makes Jongeling such a remarkable parliamentarian? That's simple. The man works like a horse! He is always fully informed. When Jongeling speaks, the house listens."

Both as a journalist and a statesman, Pieter Jongeling knew himself bound by the inspired Word of God and as such his labour has born much fruit.
