The Boy Chums Cruising in Florida Waters


by Wilmer M. Ely

with a new preface by Robert Rich Jr.

Wilmer M. Ely introduced whole generations of American youth to the adventures of the Chums and produced this classic story of Florida in the days of rum runners.

The young heroes have their boat stolen from them, and without any money they sign on with a commercial fisherman to pursue catch along the coast of Florida. Not everyone they meet is a sportsman, to put it mildly, and they confront some pretty rough criminals who are out to make as much trouble as possible. The boys acquire staunch allies in honest fisherman who help them beat back the crooks, but not without close calls and high adventure.

This new edition is introduced by Robert Rich Jr., a well-known authority on Florida fishing and its long history.
