A story of adventure in a Central American Republic. The hero is sprung from several generations of soldiers, and becomes a West Pointer as a matter of course. Unfortunately the discipline of the institution makes a victim of him, and he is dismissed in disgrace for a violation of orders. Determined to be a soldier somewhere he consults the newspapers, discovers that a revolution is going on in Honduras, and forthwith sets out to offer his sword to the insurgents... A very entertaining novel about a quixotic young man who gets kicked out of West Point for chasing skirts during unauthorized hours and then sails off to adventure in Central America after his expulsion in order to seek redemption. Upon his return to the US, young Macklin has to decide whether to settle down or continue with a life of adventure. Lots of satire in this story and some of the points are hilarious.
