Dealer Notes
Garry Hogg wrote lots of travel books about the British Isles and Europe. However, he also created two or three children's adventure series

Explorers A wheel; Explorers Afloat; Explorers on the Wall.

The Secret of the Shuttered Lodge; Houseboat Holiday;

Sealed Orders; The Secret of Hollow Hill; Norwegian Holiday.

In his books he did spend quite a lot of time dealing with the practical points of various operations e.g. in "The Secret of Hollow Hill" he explains exactly how to generate power from a mountain stream and turn it into a crushing mill. This is accompanied by Ransome style drawings.
