The Collier-Macmillan English Program is unique in providing a wide range of basic and supplementary material to meet the differing needs of students of English as a second language. The Collier-Macmillan Readers, a series within this Program, offers varied and enjoyable reading material, graded at several levels. This book - with a vocabulary on the 4000-word level - has been adapted from Herbert Brean's novel "Hardly a Man Is Now Alive," a contemporary mystery story utilizing material from the history of the New England village of Concord, Massachusetts, in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Mary Raitt and Helena Newman rewrote and adapted the original work, and illustrations are by Eleanor Mill. For classroom use, there are comprehensive questions on each chapter.
