Cannery Row Chapter 13 Summary
Back to the story of Mack and the boys' camping trip.
The next morning, Eddie comes back with an entire stolen carburetor. They put it in the car and they're on their way.
On the way to the Carmel River they hit a rooster, find a bag of carrots, and steal a bag of onions. Dinner!
The boys find a nice spot, make a campfire and settle in to rest for a few hours, since you can only catch frogs at night.
Over a nice chicken dinner, Mack and the boys talk about how you can't trust a married man.
Mack starts wondering whether they're really throwing this party for Doc or themselves.
Suddenly, an angry man with a dog tells them to get off his property.
Mack manages to charm him, though, and everyone ends up going up to the man's house, where he just happens to have a pond full of frogs.
Mack and the boys call the man "the captain."
