Jack North's Treasure Hunt / Or, Daring Adventures in South America

Roy Rockwood was a house pseudonym used by the Stratemeyer Syndicate for boys adventure books. The name is mostly well-remembered for the Bomba, the Jungle Boy (1926–1937) and Great Marvel series (1906- 1935). The Stratemeyer Syndicate was the producer of a number of series for children and adults including the Nancy Drew mysteries, the Hardy Boys, and others. The Stratemeyer Syndicate was the creation of Edward Stratemeyer, whose ambition was to be a writer la Horatio Alger. He succeeded in this ambition (eventually even writing eleven books under the pseudonym Horatio Alger), turning out inspirational, up-by-the-bootstraps tales. In Stratemeyers view, it was not the promise of sex or violence that made such reading attractive to boys; it was the thrill of feeling grown-up and the desire for a series of stories, an I want some more syndrome. Works written under that name include: Five Thousand Miles Underground; or, The Mystery of the Centre of the Earth (1908), Jack Norths Treasure Hunt (1907) and Lost on the Moon; or, In Quest of the Field of Diamonds (1911).
