KIRKUS REVIEW

Pennsylvania born Mike Fink has become almost apocryphal in his daring exploits, as in pioneer days he crossed the hazardous waters of the western United States. In this biography the important elements of Fink's life are woven into a pattern of legend and humor. His intrepidity and physical prowess are mentioned in the light of his fearlessness in Indian fighting, and are also exposed in the light of folk accounts which picture the powerful Mike Fink as a Gulliver among the Lilliputs. Although several books have been written on Mike Fink, this animated biography should appeal to those same appetites which were tempted by the recent Davy Crockett books.
