IL RINOMATO CATALOGO WALKER & DAWN
Louisiana, 1904. Life in the bayou is hard, especially for four kids who don’t know much about the world. One day, they find three dollars in an empty tomato can.
And they decide to order a revolver from the Renowned Walker & Dawn Mail Order Catalogue.
When the package arrives, however, it contains nothing but an old pocket watch. And a broken one at that. So begins a long trip across America among card sharps and corrupt detectives, corpses and murderers, wanderers and butchers. At stake there’s a crazy stash of money… Not to mention their lives!
This novel is an enthralling adventure with four protagonists that could have been Tom Sawyer’s best friends.
