Overview

The story of Billy Byrne—as extraordinary a character as the famous Tarzan.

Excerpt:

During this period Billy neglected the box cars on Kinzie Street, partially because he felt that he was fitted for more dignified employment, and as well for the fact that the railroad company had doubled the number of watchmen in the yards; but there were times when he felt the old yearning for excitement and adventure. These times were usually coincident with an acute financial depression in Billy's change pocket, and then he would fare forth in the still watches of the night, with a couple of boon companions and roll a souse, or stick up a saloon.

It was upon an occasion of this nature that an event occurred which was fated later to change the entire course of Billy Byrne's life. Upon the West Side the older gangs are jealous of the sanctity of their own territory. Outsiders do not trespass with impunity. From Halsted to Robey, and from Lake to Grand lay...

I was finally able to find "The Mucker" again. I grew up reading ERB books; the Tarzan series, the Martian series, the Venus series, etc. They were a great group of books for a young boy/man to read. They opened up so many avenues for me to choose. Reading in the late 20th century was so much better than the technological age(video games, TV, social networks on computers) of the 21st century. It allows your imagination to grow, and get a bit of history as well. The Nook has reopened that for me, and my father. He grew up on the ERB books as well. We live on different sides of the country so lending him my old paperbacks can be a bit difficult. With Barnes and Noble and the Nook we are able to relive those good times. I highly recommend this avenue to voracious readers, as well as parents looking to open up reading to their children. When that "light" is turned on, they'll never be able to turn it off!

Swashbuckling, good read. KIND OF HARD to read because of typo errors, but just skim those parts and you'll get the gist of it just fine.

Padded in. Her silver fur shined in the moonlight and she peered around.
