Cyrus Fisher, Richard Floethe (Illustrator). The book that everyone had been raving about was checked out, so I dejectedly picked out another. Cyrus Fisher was a juvenile-fiction pseudonym of author Darwin L. Teilhet (1904-64), a prolific author of mostly detective stories, often co-written with his wife Hildegarde Teilhet. Some of his other books were published under the pen-names William H. Fielding and Theo Durant. Among his other titles written as Cyrus Fisher are Ab Carmody's Treasure (set in Guatemala) and The Hawaiian Sword. He doesn’t understand why they’re going to France when they could stay home at their Wyoming ranch instead. But that’s before he discovers an old German pistol hidden in a loaf of bread. When Johnny arrives, he finds the village of Saint-Chamant anything but boring.
