The ancient Serpent Mound was the cause of all the trouble. When Professor Crawford and his family move to Scotland they find that the mound, which he intendes to excavate, lies on the boundary between his property and that of his neighbour, the irascible Admiral Majendie. And as soon as the Professor starts to dig, a neighbourly feud starts up because no one can discover to whom the mound legally belongs. The Professor’s family is a lively one, and although Susan is often too busy, the two youngest Crawfords, Keith and Cubby, actively aid and abet their father. Lalage Crawford takes it more to heart, for she has made friends with the Admiral’s son, Dick.
Mary Cadogan has written the introduction. There is also a piece by DFB’s great niece, Vivien Northcote.
