The author of the bestselling "Pinkerton" books now tells the story of Mike Fink--king of the keelboatmen, the strongest, rowdiest bunch of fellows ever to work on the Mississippi--the best grizzly and gator wrestler on the river. Full color.
Steven Kellogg graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design and later won a fellowship that allowed him to study art in Florence, Italy. He is well known for his picture books, many of which feature Pinkerton, a Great Dane based on his own pet dog. Kellogg is also well known for his amusing retellings of legends such as PAUL BUNYAN and JOHNNY APPLESEED.
From the Publisher
Mike Fink, a runaway at two days old, plows fields like an ox, fights grizzlies, and out-wrestles the king to become chief of the Mississippi keelboatmen, until Hilton P. Blathersby and his powerful steamboat come along
