Down The Mississippi by Clyde Robert Bulla TW304

Down The Mississippi, by Clyde Robert Bulla, 2nd Scholastic paperback printing, TW304, 1961, 80 pages. Illustrated by Erwin Hoffmann.

DESCRIPTION:“Eric has never seen such a rainstorm. If the wind blows them against the shore, the whole raft may break up!
Eric has always dreamed of being a river boy. That’s why he grabs the chance to be the cook’s assistant on the log raft. But he never dreamed that floating down the Mississippi would be like this- storms, Indian raids, and endless work. Erik begins to think he has had enough of the Mississippi.
Then he finds out how he really feels about the big river.” (from the back cover)


About vintagescholastics

I love these old Scholastics! I am a bookseller, writer, and dog-lover; live at the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains of New York with my computer-programmer husband. We love motor-cycle riding, renovating our old camp on Lake Desolation, gardening, and researching our genealogy. The purpose of this blog is to highlight those beloved old books from the Scholastic Book fairs from 1950 - 1979. This will serve as a catalogue of the books, with their identifying numbers, a plot summary, and a photo of the cover; with a searchable index. I want to give all of the writers and illustrator's bios so they get credit (many were writers in the summer while on vacation from their regular schoolteaching jobs.; some are lesser known efforts by very famous people; and some are reprinted classics.) Hopefully, their fans will be able to identify favorite titles with snipets of remembered information. We will always be adding new ones, and welcome your submissions
