Synopsis:

The intrepid Jacky Faber, having once again eluded British authorities, heads west, hoping that no one will recognize her in the wilds of America. There she tricks the tall-tale hero Mike Fink out of his flatboat, equips it as a floating casino-showboat, and heads south to New Orleans, battling murderous bandits, British soldiers, and other scoundrels along the way. Will Jacky's carelessness and impulsive actions ultimately cause her beloved Jaimy to be left in her wake?

This is an amazing continuation of an incredible story. While it is a fiction novel, it has a perfect blend of history, espionage, romance, adventure; everything that makes a good story, plus some great swashbuckling action. This novel follows one Mary "Jacky" Faber, a girl existing in the early nineteenth century who is determined to live her life as she likes it. Only on her way to achieving freedom, she encounters pirates, vagabonds, the British Intelligence, the Royal Navy, French spies, slave runners, and, yes, some rather dashing men. There are some very clever and humorous twists in the tale, as well as some entertaining parallels to other written works in English history.
I would highly recommend this book, or really all of the books in this series, to anyone who has a taste for the Napoleonic period, piracy, girl power, espionage, or high-spirited adventure.

Mississippi Jack is by far the best Bloody Jack book yet written. Sure it is the longest one, but it is the best. Jacky is up to no good, but that is what she is good at! she travels down the Mississippi with her true love Jaimy Fletcher just days behind her. Jacky meets many interesting people along the way, like Sacagawea. she also runs into the British Navy, no shock there. This book is thrilling and fun loving, typical Jacky Faber. It is a must read!
