The third Montooth historical thriller (see Montooth And the Canfield Witch, and Race for The Ryland Ruby) is a terrific profound look into the "Happy Days" of the Eisenhower years with readers feeling like time travelers to vividly described Indiana, Florida and Cuba. The taut homicide inquiry subplot feels like ancient history with no Bones or Jeffersonian forensics while the rise of Castro as the Cuban people's savior further anchors time and place. In all of his books, Robert Jay paints each thrill so you feel as if you too are being chased through a Florida swamp by treasure hunters, defeating the town bully or savoring the taste of a Jack Frost donut.

And in the meantime we're pretty well off. There's a wireless and lots of books. In one corner there was a door which Lucy thought must lead to Mr Tumnus's bedroom, and on one wall was a shelf full of books. Not for me"said Peter; "I'm going to explore in the house. Everyone agreed to this and that was how the adventures began. Lucy looked at these while he was setting out the tea things. They had titles like The Life and Letters of Silenus or Nymphs and Their Ways or Men, Monks and Gamekeepers; a Study in Popular Legend or Is Man a Myth?

The first in the Carty Andersson series, Montooth and the Canfield Witch follows the spirited main character leading her three close male buddies in The Crew on heart thumping mayhem through the Florida swamps of 1950. Deep in Morose Swamp, on the outskirts of the Everglades, The Crew encounters the last descendant of a family chased from Salem, Mass. by 17th Century witch hunters. The hag is dogged by cutthroat treasure hunters led by The Cuban, an ex-Marine imbued with deadly focus and intelligence. The four teenaged members of The Crew are torn by parental warnings to avoid the Canfield Witch's house and the chivalrous impulses they feel despite their fears. Tucked inside the adventure is a fable about a unique alligator whose presence in real life plays a key role in the climax. Young adult readers will enjoy learning about the apparent hardships of students living in an era without television, cell phones and iPods. Older readers will recall with fondness many long gone or seldom seen products that appear throughout the book, like Bab-O, DeSoto and Moon Pies. Carty is a well-grounded and capable girl whom today's teens can admire. Her male friends, who comprise a trio of diverse backgrounds, share a bond of bravery, loyalty, and ability with her. Though good is generally rewarded in Montooth and the Canfield Witch, and evil is usually punished, getting there is an arduous and frightening trip. Though originally written for adults, Montooth has become a Crossover sensation as teens embraced it. Montooth has been garnering a number of awards including the number one position on the recommended reading list in the Anniversary Issue of My Magazine for Girls, Atlanta; Florida Writers Association's Royal Palm Award for Historical Fiction; and three awards from Young Voices Foundation, Virginia: Adult Fiction, Juvenile /Adult Fiction, and Mystery/Suspense Young Adult Fiction.
  • I really enjoyed the characters, they were developed nicely, and the storyline is very entertaining. I will give it as a gift to a lot of my friends children. This young adult story is really appropriate for all ages and will be enjoyed by all.

  • The award-winning first in a series of Carty Andersson mysteries, Montooth and the Canfield Witch is both exciting, no matter your age, and educational. Robert Jay is a first-class author who clearly researches his work well and knows how to appeal to a wide readership, so that, even though this novel is billed as being for teenagers, Jay's audience spans the generations. While younger readers will easily be able to relate to the four friends who together embark on this adventure, those of an older generation will revel in the descriptions that Jay provides of products, including Moon Pies, Barq and Mercurochrome, that were readily available in their youth, but which, since then, have been taken off or have disappeared from the market.

    Of overwhelming interest, apart from the riveting tale, is the intimate knowledge that Jay reveals of the animals, birds and flora that are endemic to the Florida Everglades. The straightforward narrative, which is enthralling from start to finish, is told against the background of an area in which the author is clearly very much at home. The awareness that Jay conveys of the surroundings in which he places his characters counterpoises and adds validity to the veracity of the story itself. The diversity of the four characters around which the story is built shows Jay's appreciation of the multiplicity and richness of American society. While Carty epitomizes the adventurous and plucky spirit of the essential American gal, her three male cohorts have amazingly disparate natures. Being well-rounded characters, they are all shown to have both strong points and ones that still require working through as they progress towards maturity--Jay clearly has left some space for their growth in the course of the series. And, of course, that is one of the main criteria for a successful series--that one looks forward with anticipation to the upcoming volumes. The next book in this series is, in fact, already available, titled Montooth II: The Race for the Ryland Ruby, and has already met with some acclaim.

    The clear ethical stance that Jay takes in his writing makes his stories all the more praiseworthy and only goes to add greater substance to the tales he tells. Montooth and the Canfield Witch has set an outstanding precedent for author Robert Jay, with it having garnered numerous awards, including the Royal Palm Literary Award for Historical Fiction, and Virginian Young Voices Awards for Juvenile / Young Adult Fiction, for Mystery / Suspense Young Adult Fiction, and for Adult Fiction. An exceptional work of undoubted merit, Jay's books should make you long to be young once more, or else go a long way to enhancing your present appreciation of the youth that you possess.

  • What a great story, I loved this book! Found it a few months ago at the local public library, it was on a display table near the new arrival section. I was not familiar with the book or the author, but the cover looked interesting, so I read the synopsis and decided to give it a try. I grew up in rural south Georgia in the 1960's, so a lot of the setting was very familiar and brought back a lot of good childhood memories. But you don't have to be a from down south, or a kid, to enjoy this book. I liked everything - the plot, the characters, the setting. And it's a fairly long book, one that you can really sink your teeth into. I had the same reaction as I did after reading the first Harry Potter novel, in that I was amazed that I, as a fifty-seven year old, enjoyed a work of juvenile fiction so very much.
    As I mentioned previously, I read this a few months ago, and it took me a while to remember the title. When I brought it up on Amazon, I also saw that the second book in this series is out. Can't wait to read it!

  • In 1950 near the Everglades in Winter Free, Florida, tomboy Catherine "Carty" Andersson, Blake Holmes and Hale Wending form the Crew group of friends. Soon afterward, Maximilian "Mack" Stein joins the Crew. All four are fourteen years old with Carty being the only female.

    Their parents warn the kids to stay away from Morose Swamp where the infamous witch Sally Canfield resides. She is as the last of her line dating back to the Salem Witch hunts. However, being young teens, cautionary tales from parents are to be ignored. So they enter the swamp to just peek at the witch. The Crew is stunned with what they see as the hag is younger than their parents and harassed by deadly treasure seekers who believe the crone conceals a fortune. Led by brilliant strategist former marine Cruz "Cuban" Cruz, they deploy as a unit on a destroy and search mission. The counter force is the Crew and Montooth the duck protecting alligator.

    Montooth and the Canfield Witch is an entertaining historical fable starring a fully developed cast (including the swamp) who brings alive the early days of the Cold War near the Everglades. Carty keeps the tale focused whether she is with her BFFs Crew, beating the snot out of odious schoolmate Haywood Dolder or protecting the crone in the swamp. Young adult readers will relish the battle between good and evil as, oh my, the witch, the thug, and the alligator make for a terrific 1950 teen adventure.
