BAYOU ADVENTURE

Lots of fireworks in a not over-worked terrain of the Louisiana bayou country, make this good adventure (with a by-product of some measure of cultural insight into the ways of life and people of the area). The hero is ""Nap"" Dauville, who at 15 is a good representative of his Crecle forebears, charming, courteous, colorful, living their swamps, and with a determined loyalty. When the new game warden disappeared, Nap had his suspicious, and when further investigations indicated a tapped gasoline pipeline, schemes to molest those engaged in building the new canal, and canning of the poisonous roe of garfish, Nap and his pals get into action. Nice looking book, with a somewhat anemic jacket which isn't a good selling factor.
