Description

A miserly miller with a stash of gold, some sly smugglers who nevertheless remember to send a thank you note, a stern schoolmaster who couldn’t tell time, and a thief with two left feet are just some of the fascinating individuals who grace the pages of Scamps and Scoundrels. Riotous and witty, Bob Kroll writes these tales of historic hijinks in a delightfully folksy style, bringing to life snippets of the Maritimes’ less glorious past. With over a hundred tales from the 1700s to the 1900s, there is an example of just about every odd, peculiar, silly and ill-advised adventure you can think of. Scamps and Scoundrels gives readers a glimpse of the lives of smugglers, sailors, robbers, murderers, and sometimes just ordinary folk having a surprisingly bad day.
