In this book, TinTin comes to America and has a series of misadventures: he's falsely accused by police, captured by mobsters, and later nearly killed by native Americans. This a pre-captain Haddock entry in the series, so it's just TIntin and Snowy. This fast-paced chase is quite a romp. Unlike some of the later entries, this volumn frequently goes for pages without words. I had read several of the books before this but was surprised this was set in the 1930s.
