Uncle George intends on going on a three week tour of Switzerland and asks Rollo to join him, which he happily does. Sister Jane stays with the parents in Paris while father still recuperates from his injury. (What is this injury and how much longer is it going to last?) They travel upon the lakes, atop the glaciers, and across mountain passes. A good portion of the book is devoted to Jungfrau — which they don’t climb, of course, but they do make a two-day outing of climbing one of the foothills to get a spectacular view of it. They get to see and hear and avalanche on the great mountain. In the end, they make their way to the Rhine to book passage back to Paris and Rollo’s parents.
Inscription: With the same stamp most of my Rollo books are stamped with, “Roy A. Evans”, on the front flyleaf. Above it, with a smaller but more decorative stamp, it says “Roy Evans, Alfred, Maine”.
