In 1922, the A. L. Burt Company developed The Ranger Boy Series, which was aimed at boys between 12 and 16 years old. The Ranger Boys are three friends. Garfield Boone is consider the leader. He comes from wealth, as his father is involved in the lumber industry. Dick Wallace, another member of the trio, was raised by Boone’s father after his father left and his mother died. The trio is rounded out by Phil Durant, who is of French descent and fluent in French. The trio is part of the Maine Ranger service, and the book series details some of the issues that Rangers face, such as smuggling and rescue operations.
