Abby | 214 comments If you put some of the plot details into your title, it might be more likely to catch someone's eye who can recognize your book. Good luck!


Robert Cauley | 164 comments Hi Abby,

That's pretty much what I got. I did remember Hydronauts by carl l biemiller out of the blue but no luck with that so far here. Please keep an eye out. Robert C

If anyone can bump this up in the queue please do.

Robert, your comment did just bump it up in the queue.


Robert Cauley | 164 comments I read this book at a Boys Club repeatedly between 1973-1976 before it was stolen.It had been donated and they did not track them and I never wrote down the title or author. The book though at the time was in very good shape and I do not recall yellowing of the pages so I think 1970 to 1976 was when it was published. Robert C


SparksofEmber | 946 comments I bet this is Komantcia. Komantcia by Harold Keith I searched for it myself a year or so ago here. :)


Robert Cauley | 164 comments Hey;

That really looks like it. i have gone ahead and ordered it. What's amazing is that I just finished reading "Rifles for Watie" by the same author and in all these years never put the two together. I'll let you know. I think we can put this done as solved or at least 99.98 percent solved. Robert C

Do you want to wait then Robert? Or just go ahead and have this moved to Solved?


Robert Cauley | 164 comments Better wait until the book is in hand just to be on the safe side. I am very optimistic but I will let you know when i get the book. It is apparently already in the mail. Robert C


Robert Cauley | 164 comments Got it. This is the book. Solved, Now if I only could get the exact same edition..lol Thanks all!


SparksofEmber | 946 comments Yay. Awesome. :)


Robert Cauley | 164 comments "Komantica" was the one I was looking for; for this post but there was a scene I was looking for that was not in this book. I had apparently intermingled it from another. It is not "horsecatcher" either because the main protagonist there is the girl. The end is all I remember; the teenage boy is a "horsecatcherC at is with the Commanches at the end of the story and is trying to decide which or both of two beautiful commanche girls to marry. Not "Komantica" by Keith and not "horsecatcher".


SparksofEmber | 946 comments Hi Robert, you might want to start a different thread if you're wanting help to find that book. I bet someone here can find it but it'll be a buried search unless it gets it's own thread.
