SHAD HAUL by Paul Corey


Email this review


Good story telling without much attempt at characterization below the surface, but with sound character building values. Two boys, both needing the wherewithal to get to college launch a private venture in shad fishing, and end by creating a community cooperative. Through an entire shad season they buck the big commercial competition, only at the end to uncover the crookedness which had been responsible for the tricks used against them. They get into high speed for the final big run of a poor season, and wind up with glorious success, and the spirit of the cooperative affecting the spirit of the Hudson River community.
