ONE GOOD TURN DESERVES ANOTHER
Pocomoto sat in the shade of the tall rock, watching the wild horse herd move slowly over the valley
among the thickets of high, thorned brush. Some of the colts pranced and kicked their heels in the
manner of all young wild horses.
But the delay in the journey meant Pocomoto was able to help another, although it
caused his own life to be put at risk until rescue arrived dramatically from an unexpected quarter.
The first of three short stories featuring Pocomoto in Swift Annuals.
It starts on page 78 of the book, continues on page 79, 80 and almost fills page 81. There are three illustrations. The first, as can be seen above, is in portrait format. The other two are in landscape across the page, filling almost half the available space.
The artist, like the author, is not credited on the title page . In Swift annuals at this time this was normal, but on
the Contents page the book lists all the Writers and Artists who had contributed.
You will, however, look in vain for Rex Dixon. He is not mentioned. However the name Robert
Martin is recorded. Reginald Martin used this name for his Joey books and for several
other children's books he wrote at that time - why it is used here is not clear.
