First GGBP edition paperback of RUEY RICHARDSON - CHALETIAN - Chalet School No. 44 by Elinor M. Brent-Dyer and published by Girls Gone By Publishers, Somerset in 2009. It was first published in 1960. This complete and unabridged edition is now out of print.

The book is in near fine condition (clean illustrated covers and black lettering on the front and spine) with only minor shelf wear. Internally, the pages are clean and tight, there are no tears and no inscriptions.

The Chalet School is a series of approximately sixty school story novels by Elinor Brent-Dyer, initially published between 1925 and 1970.

The school was initially located in Austria, moved to Guernsey in 1939, following the rise to power of the Nazi Party, then to "Plas Howell", a house on the border of England and Wales, then to St Briavels, close to the English - Welsh border and finally to Switzerland.

Chalet School books were originally published in hardback between 1925 and 1970. The novels were reissued in paperback format between 1967 and 1995. Usually with updated language. Some were more or less uncut, but many others were abridged to various extents, including chapters deleted from some titles. A few were split into two paperback volumes, and several were retitled.

Several authors have written books about the Chalet School. Some of them follow on from the last book of the series, and others attempt to fill in some of the "gaps" in the earlier years of the school. All books are published by Girls Gone By Publishers (formerly Friends of the Chalet School).

Ruey Richardson - Chaletian was first published by W & R Chambers, Ltd, in 1960 and it is No. 44 in the Chalet School series.

"Ruey Richardson, who with her brothers Roger and Roddy, was a ward of Joey and Jack Maynard, enters the Chalet School where she finds life very different from that in Croydon. She plays a large part in reintroducing lacrosse to the Chalet School, but finds she has an enemy ready-made in Francie Wilford.

Francie had hoped that since Margot Maynard has now lost her alter ego, Emerence Hope, they two might be friends. Margot does not see it in the same light and Francie, whose character is already slightly warped by her home circumstances, lets her jealousy of Ruey poison her school life.

The pair are at daggers drawn most of the term, but towards the end a totally unexpected trifle breaks the deadlock. Explanations are made and they set out on a real friendship.

Besides this, Ruey and the boys have to face a hard trial in the take-off of their space-mad father on a flight to the moon – a business that seems likely to leave them fatherless.

However, the end of the book finds her realising that she is not really alone in the world and that there are many people who are in a far worse case than she is. In short, she is on the way to becoming a real Chaletian."

293 pages.
