Book Description:
Set in 1890's USA, teen detective Gallegher is a copy boy for a local newspaper, but due to his superior sleuthing and feisty Huck Finn attitude, he ends up solving a serious crime. Walt Disney thought enough of the spunky Gallegher story to make a TV series of it back in 1965. Of course, Gallegher is only one of the 9 other interesting stories included, all period pieces, with interesting characters, all interestingly told.
