Cossairt II, Joseph A., Diaz, Arthur S.


Work is Lenora Carrington's favorite four-letter word... "And work is what people were created for, is it not?" After all... "You can't buy money with happiness...can you?" Carrington Cory Carrington, president & Chairman of the Royal Scot Dunedin Bank & Trust of New Zealand, sits in a large leather chair dispensing wisdom to his depositors: "Safe & sound in every respect. Yes, sound & safe." This is a knowing flat out lie! But fortunately for the local peace of mind, no one in the community is aware of that yet. Carrington's only concern now days is his other corporation which lies across the Pacific in America: The Norfolk, Danville & Pacific, a railroad that hasn't yet been built but bought & paid for so generously (& unknowingly,) by the depositors of the Royal Scot Dunedin Bank & Trust--no less. Abner de Amory Decatur, Carrington's neighbor, long time friend & member of the Board of Directors, also has problems. Serious ones! Abner's nice home on Lord of Isles Road, a pleasant place surrounded by fine yards & gardens, will soon have to be left behind like everything else. In 1860, New Zealand was a new country with prosperity for the taking. And take they did! Now two prominent Dunedin families--under cover of darkness & a cloudy sky--must hastily board the tramp steamer Cartagena Castle, which awaits to transport them from the shores of New Zealand & out of the reach of the Court of Queen's Bench, to the shores of yet another new country: America, land of the free & home of the brave & a sucker born every minute. Third Mate on a Tramp is a beautifully written & funny novel that chronicles the lives of two families who by design & chance conquer the financial, legal & political frontiers of California. Historically accurate, Third Mate on a Tramp is required reading for history buffs & connoisseurs of humor alike.Cossairt II, Joseph A. is the author of 'Third Mate on a Tramp', published 2001 under ISBN 9780970525932 and ISBN 0970525931.
