KIRKUS REVIEW

This is a humdinger -- exactly the right story for the small boys to whom Treasure Island is the best book ever written, and for whom a shabby old scow would be the perfect headquarters for a pirate crew. Well, the neighboring busybodies did not agree, and the scow was threatened, so the ""pirates"" ran away with their boat, and had a succession of plausible but exciting adventures along the Des Moines river as they made for the Mississippi and freedom. Here's Phil Stong at his best, a good tale, well compounded of adventure and humor and personalities and background, seasoned with complete understanding of small boy demands.
