My First Camping Trip in the Ozark Mountains
I was eight years old the first time I camped in the Ozark Mountains. Dad and I pitched our tent on a gravel bar at the Jacks Fork River. At night sat around the campfire with a full moon overhead. I was lulled to sleep by the jug-a-rum croaking of a bullfrog in a slough. Many camping trips have come and gone since that summer long ago, but none so memorable as the first one—just me and Dad, swimming, fishing, and exploring the river for three whole days, seeing nary another soul.

Smashwords book reviews by Rolland Love

  • The Leveler on Dec. 14, 2011

    "The Leveler" reminded me a lot of John Sandford's earlier "Prey" books. Filled with tension, McLaughlin's book will keep you on the edge of your seat." I've read The James Charade by McLaughlin as well and I can hardly wait for him to finish book #3. You, Mr. Jim, are a word wizard and literary master!
  • The James Charade on Dec. 14, 2011

    “The James Charade is a great book and will make a great movie! Your style is so much like Lawrence Sanders I thought he had been resurrected. You promised to make me laugh out loud and I did so many times. Keep up the good work, I look forward to more of your five star stories in the future. Great that you're writing a 3rd novel!”
