Seeking adventure? Look no further! The year is 1913: the place, Europe. McCracken, inventor, engineer, big-game hunter and faithful Catholic, tells the stories of his adventures in a NEW series of novels made for everyone who loves adventure--but especially for boys.
The McCracken books are written by Mark Adderley, Ph.D. They originated as winter evening read-alouds, designed for the entertainment of the whole family, but especially 13-year-old Will and 9-year-old Nick (the real-life Vasili and Nicolas). McCracken owes his faith, and the Catholicity of his whole world, to the concern that Will and Nick had for him; they wanted to be certain that Mac was a faithful Catholic.
And so he is, and all his colleagues too, as we realized first, that adventure is an integral part of our faith; and second, that there are all too few good, exciting books for boys that feature Catholic heroes and heroines (excluding saints’ stories, of course). Like McCracken himself, we hope to fix that. Please send us your feedback here, so that we'll know if we're getting it right.
