Two Kids and a Living Legend

As far back as anyone can remember, the small Mississippi town of Satartia has had just one claim to fame: Eli, the huge catfish living under the bridge. The town has lost count of how many people have tried—and failed—to catch him. But in the summer of 1987, two local kids come up with a creative approach. With a river raft, some patience, and creativity, they do what nobody has ever been able to do before…but will they really conquer the king of the river? This delightful story about gumption, cooperation, and fairness is sure to become a favorite with readers of all ages.


Daniel E Brown has been a lifelong storyteller, in speaking engagements across the United States, and “on air” as a radio talk show host in Orlando Florida. He lived in Mississippi many years ago and dusted off his memories of the small town of Satartia to write this classic Southern tale.
