Here is an amusing find–a short tale of Rex the Wonder Dog and his adventures in rescuing the missing Peter Weston, a famous scientist desperately needed for a very important U. S. government project. No, Peter did not fall into a well nor is he trapped in a collapsed mine shaft. Peter is somehow is suffering from amnesia and his brother Harold thinks that he will act out on a childhood ambition to join the French Foreign Legion. So Rex teams up with Harold and off they go to North Africa to find the missing man. Their search seems to falter but there is one last place they have to look–the lonely Legion fort known as The Daredevil’s Outpost. Of course, Rex arrives at the post in a nick of time and assists the legionnaires in defending the post from attack. …and Rex finds Peter, saves the day and becomes an honorary member of the Foreign Legion.
