About the author:

In 1904, Archer Wallace , a young Methodist minister arrived in the city of Boswarlos in Newfoundland . The people of the area enjoyed his ability to relate to youth and inspire them. Ryerson Press said of him , "Archer Wallace is a boys' man…the boy in him will never die. Boys gather round him at a football match or hockey game or Sunday School. Many boys write to him... with rare insight he is able to understand them... (His books) have proved an inspiration to boys the world over." In the 1930s, Wallace returned to Boswarlos and built a cabin in which he continued to write his books for boys. His books recorded true stories of boys who conquered their handicaps and worked their way to fame, achievement, and triumph. Another publisher noted that Wallace “never preaches but tells the story he has to tell in such a way that boys, big and little, understand and realize the message it has for them."

The Lamplighter Rare Collector Series is a beautifully-bound collection of captivating, character-building literature, carefully selected and handsomely created. The beauty of a Lamplighter book is that character is not only taught, but is demonstrated through individuals whose character is tested through the storms of life. It was Scribner's editor who once wrote to Rawlings, author of The Yearling , “The characterization of a great book is that it is both juvenile and adult.” Within a year of the first printing of our Rare Collector books, we realized that we had indeed brought back to life literature that is enjoyed by both children and adults. In fact, these stories were originally called “fireside readings,” meant to be read aloud as a family. Lamplighter books are filled with real-life themes shrouded in mystery; although the innocent may suffer wrongfully, ultimately good triumphs over evil. These ageless thematic elements birth new hope to a culture burdened with fear and uncertainty. Today, parents are often frustrated as they attempt to counter today's culture with a biblical worldview. Lamplighter books can help. Parents, relax and enjoy precious moments with your family as the story does the teaching.
