This series contains examples of:
And no libertarian should find argument with the old American virtues of self-reliance, physical courage, and survival so explicitly depicted in The Moon Maid. And it delivers an exciting and inspiring story that should delight most liberty-seekers. It restores all the passages deleted from both the magazine and book versions over the last eight decades. He has been a non-political, anti-party activist in the libertarian movement since
