The Savage Gentleman Paperback / softback
by Philip Wylie
Part of the Bison Frontiers of Imagination series
Betrayed by his wife, Stephen Stone spirits his son, Henry, away to a remote tropical island and trains him to be an ideal physical specimen and a perfect gentleman.
After years of isolation, Henry Stone is now a young man, standing a full six feet two inches tall and weighing 190 pounds.
His hair is bronze, his eyes turquoise, his skin mahogany-a magnificent man.
When Henry finally returns to civilization, he finds that his father's business has grown into a news empire.
Though he is the owner of this huge conglomerate, a great conversationalist and excellent company, well versed in etiquette, and extraordinarily nice, Henry has never seen a woman.
Indeed his father has taught him never to trust a female and that love itself is a myth.
When Henry collides with the contemporary world and the modern woman, the collision is necessarily fascinating and complicated for both Henry and the society he is discovering.
