RIVER TREASURE

A good story of boys, dogs, fishing and treasure -- against a setting of the treacherous Roanoke River in the flood area of Occoneechee Neck, North Carolina. Guy is an orphan, a little Negro boy who lives wretchedly with his stepmother. Then Miss Delly and Mr. Rufus come into his life and things are different for all of them. With charming detail, human adventures that march with a wealth of folk lore -- while avoiding burlesque this is a story of real flood, of hopes and dreams and hard work gone with the waters, in a sense of real but unoppressive background for sound adventure.
