About the Book

The fifth book in the Aunt Jane's Nieces series, authored by L. Frank Baum under the pen name "Edith Van Dyne," is titled Aunt Jane's Nieces Out West. In the book, Beth de Graf and Patsy Doyle accidentally find themselves on the set of a film that features a collapsing building. They've unknowingly become extras in a film, which horrifies Beth. The perils of operating collapsing plants are depicted in the movie through a narrative. The daughter of the factory owner is killed by a crumbling wall in the movie. They meet Maud and Flo Stanton, guests of their own Aunt Jane, and stay at the same hotel. Beth is sure that movies may teach kids valuable lessons. A guitarist named Fred A. Colby, who has never tried a case but is determined to succeed, is hired by John Merrick.
The Stanton and Jones characters are back in the subsequent and last installment of the Aunt Jane's Nieces series. Baum also uses name-dropping by having Uncle John make allusions to writers of fairytales whose works have been adapted for the big screen. Additionally, it features Edith Van Dyne's lone self-proclamation in the series, in which she claims that her mother used to tell her that people with beauty had nothing else since she wasn't a lovely girl.
