A Pocomoto adventure story
Pocomoto was minded to recall what he knew about mountain lions when he saw signs
of one on the ground ahead of his horse's hooves. Goldflash bucked and plunged,
tossing his long-maned head while Pocomoto inspected the track of the big cat's
padded paws impressed on soft, sandy soil.
But though lucky it was; unlucky for one of the travellers, and Pocomoto was to need all
his luck as well as his skill to save the life of one of them without a killing.
This is the second Pocomoto story to appear in the Swift annuals.
Like the first this starts on page 78 and occupies four double-column pages of the book, ending on page 81.
It is illustrated with four monochrome illustrations but the artist is not credited and the drawings appear to be unsigned.
On the Contents page the Writers and Artists are all listed, and Rex Dixon can be found in the former. Of the 39 listed artists it's anyone's guess who drew the pictures !
