A YA history that may interest those who study the US during World War II. It focuses on a government housing project in South Portland, Maine, housing shipyard workers. Peary Village is built on a large farm. With several hundred apartments in row houses, it is a natural market for an enterprising newsboy. And the papers interest a pack of Samoyeds. Two older Scots and the dogs frame the story.
