The Riverman by Stewart Edward White
page 1 of 453 (00%)
I was pleased to find S.E. White's "The Riverman" as a Project
Gutenberg Etext as I had been looking for it elsewhere, but the
text had somehow been scrambled, with bits and pieces in the
wrong order. So I'm sending you my corrected version.

I believe I have joined all the pieces correctly, but I could
do nothing about the one or more missing lines shortly after the
mention of "Koosy-oonek" in chapter IV. I have marked the hiatus
with five asterisks (*****). I hope that someone will fill in the
missing line(s).

Yours sincerely,

jt Nov 03 - A reader reports from another edition that there is
no missing word, and that the sentence does read
". . . brings rain on the just when they want to go fishing."
