Kids love this funny and energetic picture book portrayal of one of America’s most famous frontiersmen and larger-than-life heroes.
Mike Fink was king of the keelboatmen—the strongest, rowdiest bunch of fellows ever to work on the Mississippi. Mike was a whole lot more than a keelboater—yes, sir! He was a crack shot and the best grizzly and gator wrestler on the river. They don’t make ’em like Mike these days, now do they?
But what will Mike do when the larger, faster, smoke-spewing steamboats attempt to take over the rivers?
A good supplement for units on tall tales, folktales, American history, and the Mississippi River. And just a fun read-aloud for sharing.
