HALF HORSE -- HALF ALLIGATOR

A collection of tales from old almanacs, magazines and newspapers deals with the legend that grew up about an American Keelboatman known as Mike Fink. Not the least is one from Crockett's Almanac which will upset fans, for ""the son of the wild frontier"" loses a shooting match to Mike. A fascinating bit of early Americana and a graphic indication of the wild, free spirit of the times.
