A story of space travel

Max Jones, the hero of this wonderful story, had a great ambition to be the navigator of a space ship. For years he had studied the books left him by his uncle, who was a famous flyer, until he knew them as well as the twice times tables. When he runs away from home he makes friends with an older flyer, and they both get jobs as members of the crew of the space ship Asgard, which is setting forth on a journey to the distant stars. What happens when the Asgard is lost, and the adventures of Max, whose remarkable knowledge leads to him being made the captain of the space ship, are told in a way that makes STARMAN JONES one of the most exciting stories you will ever read.
