The travels of Colin O'Dae by Ruth Franchere( Book )

2 editions published in 1966 in English and held by 107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Of all the Western journeys, sure an' this is one of the strangest: a bit of a broth of an Irish lad scullin' and singin' down the Mississippi on the first showboat ever. The curtain goes up in Chicago in 1836. Rather than live in the canal workers' camps with his father, fourteen-year-old Colin O'Dae runs away with a company of travelling actors. After considerable hardship, they reach the Illinois River, where Edwin Flower, leader of the company, buys a keelboat and has it fitted out with an auditorium for performances. Colin becomes unofficial captain of the strange vessel and, after a bout with stage fright, a regular member of the cast. They play for one or two nights at each of the little towns along the Illinois and the Mississippi. But the dreamlike quality of the slow trip turns into a nightmare when they all come down with swamp fever."--Kirkus
