Bellboy: A Mule Train Journey

Bellboy: A Mule Train Journey


By Margaret S. McClain. Bellboy is a perennial favorite. It is a novel based on actual events (experienced by the author's father), telling the story of a 12 year old boy's first trip as the rider of the bellmare of a large pack train out of Forks of Salmon. The often dangerous and sometimes too exciting two-week round trip is representative of life before roads. Enjoyed by both young adults and grown adults!
