KIRKUS REVIEW

orced to leave town by a competitive gunsmith, young Lee joined the hearty grew of a Mississippi River keelboat. On the half-savage frontier of 1811, life was ugged affair; pirates on the river had a flourishing business in attacking and lundering the trade boats. The Clash between pirates and traders here results in ntrigue and capture of the traders, including Lee. The author of Battle For King's Mountain (1962, p.62, J-28) has again written a tense, tough tale about unusual men--surely for the boys.
