    Default Captain Mayne Reid

    In my search for some fresh wintertime reading material I came across author by the name of Mayne Reid. Mr Reid was a very prolific writer from the mid 1800s. The writings seem to have a "woodsman" slant to them but I haven't really read much of his writings to know that for sure. There is a plethora of stories and writings on project gutenberg

    Any fans of Captain Mayne Reid?
    so the definition of a criminal is someone who breaks the law and you want me to believe that somehow more laws make less criminals?

    Never heard of him until now.

    He was a serious drinking buddy of Edgar Allen Poe.

    It is pretty bad when Edgar Allen Poe considers you an insufferable liar!
    If you didn't bring jerky what did I just eat?
