Goodwin, Harold Leland: The Flying Stingaree PDF v1 07.Nov.2009
Author: Harold Leland Goodwin (November 20, 1914-February 18, 1990) was an American writer.
Known to his friends as Hal Goodwin, Goodwin wrote popular science books, mostly about space exploration, as Harold L. Goodwin, "Hal Goodwin" and "Harold Leland Goodwin". He also wrote children's books as Blake Savage (Rip Foster Rides the Gray Planet) and John Blaine (the Rick Brant series). In the latter case, he co-wrote (with Peter J. Harkins) the first 3 books in the series and wrote books 4 through 24 by himself.
Book: What's shaped like a sting ray and flies over Chesapeake Bay? This is the eerie riddle which confronts Rick Brant and his friend Don Scott when, seeking shelter from a storm, they anchor the houseboat Spindrift in a lonely cove along the Maryland shore and spot the flying stingaree. The "thing," they learn, is not the only one of its kind—one is actually suspected of having kidnaped a man! The residents of the Eastern Shore of Maryland believe the strange objects are flying saucers, but, weary of ridicule, have ceased reporting the sightings. Rick and Scotty, their scientific curiosity aroused, begin a comprehensive investigation, encouraged by their friend Steve Ames, a young government intelligence agent, whose summer cottage is near the cove. As the clues mount up, the trail leads to Calvert's Favor, a historic plantation house—and to the very bottom of Chesapeake Bay. How Rick and Scotty, at the risk of their lives, ground the eerie menace forever makes a tale of high-voltage suspense.
This book is fully illustrated and features the original cover.

PS: I am right now playing around with the PDF format. With this book I propose an example of a PDF specially formatted for Reader hardware, but still features all the illustrations. I quite like the reading experience on my Reader. Please let me know what you think of this book!
