Is it really possible to catch a 6 foot, 2 inch long catfish that weighs 200 lbs on the Mississippi River?

Can you really “raise a corpse” by either shooting a cannon or floating some bread with quicksilver in it?

Someone actually named a person Balaam’s Ass?   (That one’s pretty funny!)


Are these things true, or just “fish stories?”   Christine, maybe your annotated edition has some help for me.   I keep finding myself saying, “Really??!!” as I read this novel.
