About the Author

Frank Stringfellow was born in Cheriton, on the Eastern Shore of Virginia October 27, 1940. He lived in Cape Charles, Chinoteague, and Wattsville. He was raised on Chinoteague Island during the late '40s and early '50s when the people lived off of the ocean. It was relatively primitive as there was no Chesapeake Bay Bridge or Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel connecting the Eastern Shore to mainland Virginia. There was also no bridge connecting Chinoteague and Assateague Islands.

Frank lived the best of both worlds past and future in he present. He experienced the outdoor adventures of Frankie and Skip in that he lived on the "gut", a narrows between Chinoteague channel and Chicoteague Bay. He enjoyed a freedom when summer days were timeless and one's mother told you "Be home by dinner". The day was ll your's and it became an adventure. Freedom demanded responsibility, respect for nature, appreciation for beauty, and yes, even danger.

Chinoteague naval Air Station was visible from his back door. He saw the development of jet aircraft and rocketry from Wallops Island, which introduced him to the beauty and excitement of science.

He graduated from Atlantic High School (Arcadia) in 1958, earned a B.S. degree from St. Louis University in 1962, a Master of Arts from Drake University in 1964, and a Ph.D. from the University of South Carolina in 1967. he worked for the USDA in Beltsville, MD. for 32 years as a zoologist and authored (or co-authored) over 40 publications.

Frank is retired and lives in Greenbelt, Maryland with his wife Therese. They have two children, mary and John. He enjoys his grandchildren, hobbies: wildlife biology, writing, painting, Senior Olympics, and travel.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A simple adventure story for anyone who likes tales of buried treasure. It won't entertain adults much but good for young readers or bedtime story. More homey than professional storytelling. Eight to 12 year olds would probably find it most entertaining. Although I believe a child would have to be at least 9 and a good reader to
read it independently.
