Andrea Carter and the San Francisco Smugglers (Circle C Adventures #4)
Susan K. Marlow
I requested Book #4 in the Circle C Series, San Francisco Smugglers, as we live in close proximity to San Francisco and have visited China Town on several occasions. We also have friends in Fresno that we try and visit frequently. We are also surrounded by the history of the Gold Rush Era. I felt that this particular book would be a good fit, and spark excitement for my girls to read this ...
The Devil's Swing
Don Henry Ford Jr.
I really enjoyed reading this book. Mr Fords style of writing made me see and feel the perils and attraction of drug running. His descriptive style of writing had me feeling the pain and hope of the characters.It also makes me want to visit Texas and Northern Mexico to see the harsh beauty of the area. It was a great read and I look forward to reading more of his works.
The Thin Green Line: Outwitting Poachers, Smugglers, And Market Hunters
Lookout poachers, here comes Terry
This book is for anyone that enjoyes and cares about our American Wildlife. With little support from the government and even less cash,Terry Grosz and his officers performed miracles to catch all sorts of bad guys. Just how this was accomplished is what makes it so interesting. This book will leave you laughing, crying and angry enough to write to every official you can reach. Terry loved ...
The Smuggler's Bible
Carroll & Graf Publishers
Much Too Neglected
There are many authors who deserve a larger readership (one thinks of William Gaddis, John Hawkes), but none more so than Joseph McElroy. A Smuggler's Bible fell on deaf ears when it was published in 1966, and because of this is often compared to The Recognitions and Under the Volcano. And the comparisons are valid, to a point: For while Gaddis's and Lowry's novels *have* received a ...
Mist on the Mountain
Daybreak on the Lake Press
Mist on the Mountain Review
The book is excellent. It brings back memories of the old movie Thunder Road. It is an exceptional account of a family that is in the moonshine business. I started reading and couldn't put it down. It's one of the few books I wouldn't mind my children reading so that they would have a better understanding of a former way of life.
Mountain Shadows: An Adirondack Novel of Courage, Danger, and Love
Patricia Reiss Brooks
"Mountain Shadows" is a delightful read. I am impressed by the sensitive and often dramatic treatment of historic detail. Even those of us who thought we knew a lot about the unique story of Saranac Lake, during the half century that we were the premier place in the Western Hemisphere for the treatment and cure of tuberculosis, found new insight and understanding in the telling of a very ...
The Smuggler's Treasure
Sarah Masters Buckey
This is another in the History Mystery series from American Girl, in which a young American girl is confronted by a mystery that will tax her resolve and her ability. This is the story of eleven-year-old Elisabet Holder, an eleven-year-old girl living in New Orleans in 1814. Her father had been impressed into the British Navy, stolen off his own ship, and when Elisabet learns that her uncle had ...
Walker & Co
A light comedy adventure
I thought this book was quite enjoyable. Julia and Octavia are cousins, Julia being tall, rich, slender and beautiful while Octavia is plump, poor, and somewhat homely. But the two cousins have huge hearts and they are wonderful. Julia is ready to accept the marriage proposal of a wealthy and suitable caring, young man until she falls in love with Octavia's best friend, a poor young man with not ...
Exciting TRUE story of a Dutch ironsmith's son who becomes a Bible smuggler to countries behind the Iron Curtain post-WW II. Very well-written. Appropriate for all ages as a read-aloud or age 10 and above for reading alone.
The Reluctant Smuggler (Signet Regency Romance)
Don't be thrown off by the dark cover, for this is really a light and very enjoyable book. True, there is a smuggler, and he is reluctant. He's also somewhat inept at the business, for his real trade is the game of cricket. Sebastian Whitbury is the third of the Whitbury boys to have his own book, and as most siblings are different from each other, these books differ greatly also. Dressed all in ...

No matter how serious the mess his characters find themselves in, Jonathan brings out humor. His key character Tom is an ...
Louise A. Vernon
My children were reading this for school. While they enjoyed the book, they were both struggling with comprehension . . . then we listened to the book on CD as a family - AWESOME! Thanks!

Exile to Sweet Dixie: The Story of Euphemia Goldsborough, Confederate Nurse and Smuggler
Eileen F. Conklin
Euphemia Mary Goldsborough Willson
Thomas Publications (PA)
I am the author and would like to submit my comments.
Exile to Sweet Dixie is based on the research of the extensive Goldsborough collection. In addition to the chapters of her diaries and the hospital books, there are sections on her life, the political and military oppression under which she risked her service as nurse and smuggler, her Provost Marshal file with the documents used as evidence in her trial, and her personal papers that ...

This is a fantastically entertaining book made complete by original research and the humor of the author! I recommend this book to anyone who is interested in military or maritime history, the 1920s or pirates. The book contains some fascinating pictures and it is obvious that the author has some expertise in the subject he has written about. I loved this book and I couldn't put it down!
Enid Blyton's Five Go to Smuggler's Top (The Famous 5)
This is a fantastic, exciting read for any child, boy or girl, and will delight any who read it. It is a shame it is limited availablity, and should be brought back into print, as should many Enid Blyton books. They are timeless. One of the Best!!!
Best in the series...
This fabulous conclusion to Robert Elmer's Wall series is probably my favorite. Smuggler's Treasure has the kind of pacing and intrigue that kids need to keep them engaged in a book. Plus, they will learn about history while absorbing information about the events that took place in Berlin in 1989. I'll never forget when the Berlin Wall came down. I was a freshman in college and watched with ...
Smugglers of Death & The Blackmail King (The Shadow, Volume 23)
Nosalgia Ventures, Inc. & Sanctum Productions
Another Winner for Tolin and company
The Shadow double novel series continues unabated with Smugglers of Death and The Blackmail King. While the novellas are splendid, what really makes this 'issue' is the special additions that include a radio play "Revenge on the Shadow", and the "Intrepid Ingenues" by Tolin and a forward by Margot Stevenson. What is so cool about this issue is the gorgeous Smuggler cover by Grave ...
Five Go to Smuggler's Top

We thought this book was so cool that we wrote a Haiku on it; Five go to smugglers top pop, They have adventures, Oh no, it's time to go home. Easter Gale Castle on top of the hill Sinister tower Dogs not allowed Uncle Quentin is kidnapped Timmy unearths fugitives I think the coolest chapter is the one where Block gets a surprise- it was so full of suspense. The second coolest chapter is the ...
