Raised by her pirate father on a Mississippi keeler, River is a half-feral river rat and proud of it. When her powerful father disappears in the great earthquake of 1811, she is on the run from buccaneers, including Jean Laffite, who hope to claim her father's territory and his buried treasure. But the ruthless rivals do not count on getting a run for their money from a plucky slip of a girl determined to find her place in the new order.

Filled with down-home humor, raucous hijinks, and one-of-a-kind characters, this historical novel captures the Mississippi River at a time when its denizens were as untamed as its waters.

Bobbi Miller is a story collector, a storyteller, and a writer who teaches writing. Exploring the American landscape and spinning tall tales are her passions. She is the author of several picture books for children. This is her first novel. She lives in a log cabin in Connecticut.
